Blonde On a Blue Horizon

Zemia “Barracuda” Garrett strikes a forward stance and punch as she prepares for her upcoming Blue belt test (TBA). She is a determined young woman with a “Never-say-die” mindset. Barracuda is also becoming a very accomplished Kiado-Ryu martial artist, brandishing excellent round house kicks and quick, studied hand movements. Her fighting spirit is nothing to challenge unless you want to find yourself looking up from a supine ground position, dazed, wondering what just hit you and how you got there!

We’re excited to have Zemia advance to the next level. Stay tuned!

PS: Notice the blue fingernail polish. She’s motivated!
