I first met Tina when I called Salem Gynmastics to inquire about Karate classes for my children. My kids did a trial session, love it, we signed them up. Once I found out that she offered a “real life self defense” class for adults, I signed up. I can say that it was one of the most informative and physically tough classes I have taken. That class kicked my butt and I LOVED IT! One would never know that Tina could kick your butt in a heartbeat because her beauty and kindness blinds you. Tina is a girl’s girl and connects with people immediately. Her family is pretty awesome too. Tina gave me the “heads up” that her son was a tough one and doesn’t like to be photographed nor smile. What’s a photographer to do? Turn on the charm of course! He tried really really hard not to smile but a little coaxing and he was unable to constrain them any longer. Great family and session all the way around.
