Instructor D - John Ozuna's K.O. Kung Fu Karate

Katie Schmid first started training at K.O. Kung Fu Karate in 2004. Before starting at K.O., she struggled in school and was very unfocused, but her training in martial arts has helped her learn how to set and achieve goals, and has helped her in all aspects of her life. She has competed in local, national, and world competition in forms and weapons, as well as in Lei Tai fighting. Ms. Schmid became an instructor in February of 2011.
In 2015, Miss Schmid travelled to Argentina to compete at the 5th TWKSF World KuoShu Championship Tournament in forms and weapons, and was granted the opportunity to represent the United States as a part of the Lei Tai (full contact fighting) team. Of course, she jumped at the chance! Miss Schmid returned with a silver medal in Lei Tai and a bronze medal in the Kenpo Weapons division
