On Friday September 22, 2017 at 4:40pm after battling cancer for 9 months Lisa passed away.

Lisa was one of our black belt instructors.

She came to studio in 2010 and since that time has been a beacon of light, of hope and amazing determination that shined on to others.

Lisa never gave up on herself and always pushed herself and others to improve. She had amazing courage and for that we here at BKS will forever remember her.

We will be starting a “Courage Award” in her name to honor a student or students who exemplify courage against great odds.
