Upcoming Meeting Information
This Week's Meeting - February 2, 2023
Our Speaker this week is Linda Hanson, Creator of R.E.A.C.T. Her topic is "Ensuring Safety at Work and Home Through Self-Defense".
Born in England Linda began her Martial Arts journey in 1978. After immigrating to the United States in 1984 she has continued studying with some of the best Martial artists in the world. She holds a 7th Degree Black Belt in Shorin Kempo from Master Bryan and the title of Kyoshi.
Linda spent 2 years at college in the UK to earn her N.N.E.B. a highly coveted nannying degree in England. She became a Nanny and enjoyed many years teaching and caring for children, including the children of Ron Howard and Caroline Kennedy.
After moving to Missouri in 1996 Linda decided to pursue her desire to begin teaching Martial Arts and began teaching through the YMCA organization. In 2011 she opened a dojo in Lee's Summit MO and due to its success Linda relocated Tamashii Black Belt Academy in 2015 to a larger 3,800 sqft location and ran an array of unique programs including TASK (Tamashii After School Karate) and Adaptive Martial Arts for students with Special Needs.
Linda created R.E.A.C.T. (Respond. Evade. Anticipate Corporate Training) in 2015 to fill an obvious need for companies with many employees, to increase the safety and well-being of their work force.
Since then she has been contracted to work with G.E.H.A.. The United Steel Workers, ReMax, The Nelson Atkins and many more including 5 NFL Cheerleading teams.
She offers not only in person self defense training but also virtual option. Linda’s latest innovation is the creation of online self-defense courses for people to learn at their own pace and in the privacy of their home or office.
