Coach Keelie “Kiwi” Cargill Achieves Full Instructor

Congratulations to Coach Keelie “Kiwi” Cargill on attaining the rank of Full Instructor at Warrior’s Way International. 

Friday March 24th 2023 she tested for the rank of Full Instructor for Warrior’s Way International

Warrior’s Way is headed by Tuhon Harley Elmore and is considered to be one of the best JKD (Jeet Kune Do) academies in the country.  WWI is also known to be a top Filipino Martial Arts and Silat academy carrying on the legacy of Sifu Terry Gibson started in the 80’s.

“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

Apprentice Instructor in Muay Thai under Ajarn Chai Sirisute

Full Instructor under Tuhon Harley Elmore

4th degree Black Belt under Guro Jason Epps

The Pride MMA Family is extremely proud of Coach Kiwi and we look forward to seeing what this amazing young lady accomplishes next!
