My name is Lori and I have been a Program Director, Instructor and Coach at Jim Smith Karate for 15 years. I am a 3rd degree black belt. Being a part of JSK has made my life richer, because of the places I have been, the people I have met and the knowledge I have acquired. Everyday is an education for me. I am the mother of 3 kids age 7, 11, and 15. I am also the proud mother of 3 dogs and a rabbit! My passions in addition to Martial Arts are animals, specifically dogs. I love spending the day at the dog park in Mahopac with my Border Collie, Tatiana.
