Miss Shelley Strachan
Shelley Strachan signed up for Muay Thai in 2008 looking for fitness and sport. Little did she realize how becoming a martial artist would change her life in so many ways. The path has taken her through a fully credited instructor program, including 100 hours of apprenticeship to become the fantastic teacher that she is today. She currently runs the all women's classes, and instructs in the adults, youth, and kids classes as well.
Her enthusiasm for the sport and focus on technical excellence has led her to the ring numerous times in Canada and the USA. It takes the heart of a lion to have the courage to face the ring, and Shelley defines this beautifully.
Shelley enjoys learning as much as teaching. She loves to be challenged, and also to challenge those around her. She feels that it is important to get out of your comfort zone and to find out what you really can do; how far you really can go.
She is an inspiration to those around her. She emphasizes respect, perseverance, honour, patience, courage, dedication, and motivation. She is a true martial artist and displays it in all aspects of her life.
