"Marcie has a lot of passion for martial arts technically as well as everything put into context without sacrificing any of the gleeful enjoyment of just learning to move your own body in novel and useful ways. Her years of practice and constant meticulous thought keeps her growing in the arts."

“I’ve been a training partner with Marcie for almost a decade. She is dedicated as an instructor and makes learning martial arts fun. She knows a wide range of skills and always has an eye to real-world applications. But her real strength is that she cares about people’s internal growth and finds the best way to fit the training to their personal needs.”
