Ms. Lepp has also been involved in martial arts since the age of 12! In 2001 she started training in Songham Taekwondo. Once she got her first taste of competition in a local tournament, she was hooked. Through competing Ms. Lepp developed a deep passion for the sport and spent her years as a teen progressing to her black belt, while training and competing as much as she could. Her first year as a black belt in 2004 she earned the title of World Champion in weapons (nunchaku).

Through the years since she has remained a top contender in multiple categories at the world level, finishing multiple years from 2005-2016 among the top ten of women ranked in her division in the world. In addition to being a world champion, Ms. Lepp is also a Pan-American champion in weapons (double nanchaku) for 2015. She has been thankful to travel the world thanks to her sport and was honored to test for her third degree black belt in Korea in 2013. In 2016 she earned the rank of 4 degree black belt while testing at the Pan-American tournament in Uruguay.

In addition to Taekwondo, Ms. Lepp has had the opportunity to train in the art of Muay Thai and has gained much experience working directly under a former special operations officer that trained in Thailand. She has a strong foundation in unarmed self-defense that incorporates elements of Muay Thai in addition to basic safety awareness 101 (body language, surviving a “Street Fight”, and victim prevention). She also has gained valuable experience through the years learning from many skilled professional fighters who she has coached with and trained under as part of the UFC gym network.

Currently Ms. Lepp is working towards her 5th degree black belt in taekwondo, training towards her blue belt in Jiu Jitsu, and still enjoys competing. Her favorite aspect of martial arts is sparring and she loves to train with anyone who has a passion to learn.

What Kind Of Martial Arts?

We have a variety of programs based on the type of training you are looking for. We primarily offer self-defense training that is rooted in the teaching of Jiu-Jitsu, Taekwondo, Karate, and Muay Thai. Our program is primarily stand-up but covers elements of ground defense. We focus on striking, joint manipulation, using leverage, and basic self-defense awareness.


  • "I started training in the martial arts in 1987, so I’ve experienced a number of styles, schools, and instructors. These guys are 1000% legit straight from the Gracie lineage and they really know how to teach. I’ve been working with Dante since June 2016, and couldn’t be happier with his knowledge, abilities, and willingness to share…"

  • "I’ve known Dante since 2012 when he started training my twin daughters at the age of 5 in Gracie Jiu-Jitsu. He has an excellent approach in teaching young kids, having fun while learning, which has kept my daughters and I coming back for 5 years now. The progress my daughters have made here, in school, and in life in general has been phenomenal!"
