The title of Sensei is a rare honor for any martial artist, let alone a female martial artist. Not a rank, a Sensei is a very special teaching title that requires years of teaching experience and expertise. On December 1, at our Annual Holiday Party, Shihan Wenneberg proud announced our newest Sensei, Mrs. Megan Joshi.
Sensei Megan Joshi began her training with American Martial Arts Academy at age 15, and earned her black belt in 2007. During her college years, Megan also worked with the Brea Olinda Unified School District’s childcare program, earning Employee of the Year in 2008. After graduating from Cal State University: Fullerton in 2011, she began teaching with AMAA full-time.
Congratulations to our newest Sensei!
