Sensei Andrea Barton

Shodan:1st degree black belt

 

Andrea started training at the dojo in June of 2004 to have and activity to do alongside her husband James. 

 

She brought with her a background in dance which she studied in her teens thru early adulthood. Experience in body motion proved valuable in her sword studies. Dance also gave her an understanding and appreciation of the dedication needed to excel in learning kenjutsu.

 

Early training began under Sensei Armstrong, Sensei Tod Hobart and Sensei Ken Horner.

In December of 2010 Andrea attained the rank of Shodan (1st degree) black belt.

Andrea continues to study under Sensei Tim Armstrong
