Mrs. Gabriele came to the United States from Italy at the age of 10 years old. Her parents taught her that “giving up” is not in the vocabulary and therefore, with a lot of hard work, her family became very successful. Mrs. Gabriele has been training in the Martial Arts Shorin- Ryu discipline since 1985 and has been a faithful student of Hanshi Cheech Luzzi. Mrs. Gabriele has also trained during many camps under the directions of Sensei Perry, Sensei Hargrove and Grandmaster Nakazato Shugoro.
Mrs. Gabriele earned the title of Kyoshi in 2015 and also had the honor of receiving her Kobudo Shodan rank under Grandmaster Nakazato Shugoro over 25 years ago. Along with her son Jason and her teacher Hanshi Luzzi, they had the honor of performing in Okinawa, Japan to help celebrate grandmaster Nakazato Shugoro’s birthday.
Mrs. Gabriele fell in love with the competition world after watching her son Jason compete. She traveled to many States to compete and after much hard work; she went undefeated for a total of 5 years for weapons and Kata. This experience led her to earn world titles under the Krane and Naska circuit and it also gave her wider knowledge to help her students reach their highest potentials.
Mrs. Gabriele has also trained in Krav Maga and also holds a Blue belt in Gracie Jujutsu. She is also a certified personal trainer with AFAA and continues to stay certified in all levels.
Mrs. Gabriele has also published a children’s book “Princess and the Castle” that is on Amazon and Barnes and Noble.

Her entire family trained; son Jason, 6th Degree Black Belt and also Black Belt in JuJutsu, her husband Sal, 6th Degree Black Belt and her Daughter Stefanie, 1st Degree Black Belt; “training with my entire family in class was priceless and I will always cherish those moments”.
