“It’s a Proud moment when one of your students accomplishes a goal that took them almost a decade to complete.” Say, Guro Jason Epps.
Coach Keelie “Kiwi” Cargill started training at Pride Mixed Martial Arts with Guro Epps at age four. “Her older brother started taking classes and she would sit on the sidelines mimicking all the moves” Guro Epps recalls. “After weeks of watching her perform the moves better than the older kids in class- I gave her a uniform and put her on the mat…the rest is history!”
Coach Kiwi, as she is known to her students is an accomplished martial artist and coach. Here’s a short list of some of her notable accomplishments:
2010 IKF World Classic Kickboxing Champion
Blue Belt in Lovato Brazilian Jiu-jitsu
