Meet The Team Of Tactical Martial Arts Week 2

Each week we will be doing an ” About Me” with each of our awesome staff members at Tactical Martial Arts. 

This week we are headed to the ” other side of the floor” as we call it, with our Manager, Patience Neal.

Patience Neal started her Taekwondo journey in March of 2004. She was homeschooled and needed a way to make her P.E credits for school. She began competing that summer and took home 1st place in One-Steps her very first competition. She earned her 1st Degree Black Belt in September of 2007, then decided to take a break and focus on school and her other passions. She returned in Spring of 2014 and began working behind the desk a few days per week and got back into training, she won her 1st State Title for the 2014-2015 Tournament season. She has since won 4 District Championships and qualified for Worlds twice, where she medaled last year in Combat Sparring. 

On the weekends you can find her at a barrel race or a rodeo, as that is one of her many passions, or spending time with her loved ones.
