Jacquie Enns

Jacquie has been training in martial arts since 2012; in 2013 at Revelation gym.  She is passionate about kickboxing and self-defense, and loves both training and instructing.  She likes nothing better than to see her girls hammering away at the pads and getting a fantastic workout at the same time. Jacquie’s classes are fun, and she will push you to make sure you leave with the adrenaline pumping. :)  

When she’s not training, Jacquie spends lots of time with her family.  Riding motorcycle with her husband or cuddling her grand kids are a highlight.  Being creative is something she loves as well, so she recently started her own business with staging and decor.  She also coordinates decor each week at her church.  


Jacquie would love to team up with you and get in a great workout each week.  Come on, let’s go!!!!

Kenny loves working with kids so it was a natural fit for him to become Sensei John's assistant in the kids classes held every weekday.


“I find enjoyment from helping lower belts learn. That look of accomplishment when they finally learn the move is the best!” said Kenny.


The kids are having so much fun with Kenny!
