Lauren Alexis Gordo
Since childhood Alexis has always been interested in martial arts. Inspirations from growing up in the era of Xena, the Pink Ranger and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles along with many films that deciphered martial arts throughout kept it piqued. Though it wasn't until much later in life that she was able to step onto the mats. Becoming a single mother and living on her own for the first time since having children she found it in her that it was necessary to learn a form of self-protection. What the direction of a friend who was in the Arts Jujitsu became the first thing she stepped into and fell in love with learning the arts. Since stepping onto the mats for the first time over 4 years ago she is still on this journey of learning several different styles of Arts including Jeet Kune Do, Wing Chun, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Kali.
Alexis is a Phase One Instructor in the art of Jeet Kune Do & Kali, a certified instructor in Edged Weapons, and a certified instructor in the national known self defense course, “Escape to Gain Safety.” In addition, she is a blue belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Alexis is available for private lessons for those who desire private versus group instruction.
