Carmel’s karate training and teaching includes a strong emphasis on inclusion and social justice. She is experienced with making classes and workshops accessible to people who may have thought they wouldn’t be good at karate due to age, gender, body type, limited sports/athletic background, or physical limitation. Carmel herself has trained with a mobility impairment in one leg throughout her entire martial arts career so she is well-versed in finding modifications or accommodations.
