My name is Tanya Corrales and I have trained in Activstars under the notorious Sifu Mark Steuver for around 11 years. Sifu has not only trained at the Shaolin Temple, but he is also the first North American to become an official Shaolin monk. It was under his training, that a few other students and I where able to be the first ones at our Yuma location to earn our black belt.
Under Sifu's guidance, I have learned many ancient kata’s that have been passed down throughout the generations from Shaolin Temple. During my studies, I have been trained in not only karate but in kong fu and kempo as well.
Even though I am one of the newer instructors, I still have some experience in teaching. I have been Sifu Mark Steuver’s assistant instructor for around 5 years. I enjoy teaching because not only do we show the students how to defend themselves, we also bestow upon them knowledge and disciple of how to use it.
