Brief Bio:

Ashley Dong began her training at KO in November 1996 after watching her younger brother take classes. At the young age of nine, she had no idea how big of an impact KO would have on her life. Ashley was one of the first children to be selected to be in KO's Jr. Instructor Training program where she then discovered her passion for teaching. She had no idea that this would be the first step to a life changing experience. Teaching has given her the opportunity to contribute back to the school that has given her more than she could have ever asked for and the place she considers her second home.

As her martial arts training began to evolve, Ashley began to take an interest in kickboxing. She participated in her first tournament in San Francisco where she watched some of her teachers compete in Lei Tai fighting. She was inspired and determined to compete at that level someday. Under the guidance and coaching of Master Ozuna, Ashley competed in her first full contact competition when she was just 16 years old. In November of 2006 Ashley competed in the World Kuoshu Championships and took 1st place in her Lei Tai weight division and short weapon.
