About the Trainer:


Gerry Ebalaroza-Tunnell is very passionate about teaching self defense for she was also a victim of an attack back in 1992 when she lived in Los Angeles. After a man had attacked her and attempted to steal her purse she reacted on the instincts developed from years of martial arts study, she executedsome quick moves, and broke two of his ribs resulting in the puncturing of his lung. He survived the surprise defense and was later picked up out of a line-up by three other women who had their purses snatched by the same man.


Although Ebalaroza-Tunnell survived the attack and has had many years of martial arts training, emotional strain burdened her for years. Â?Being a martial artist does not make you immune to any attack, but through continuous self defense training your skills become instinctual which can protect you against an attackÂ?, says Ebalaroza-Tunnell.

Ebalaroza-Tunnell has been training in the art of Wing Chun for over 10 years and has been teaching self defense to women in the Pacific Northwest for the past seven years and in Whatcom County for the past five. She knows very well the impact of a surprise attack and would like to teach as many women as possible the skills to defend themselves.
