Antonia has been learning karate since she was 6 years old.
Originally enrolled because of her compassionate demeanor, her parents were concerned that her trusting nature would one day get her into situations that were less than desirable. When that happened they wanted to make sure they had helped her develop the skills to defend and protect herself and others.
Watching her grow from a Lil Dragon, raise in rank from Teen Class white belt, until she earned her Shodan Ho, Junior Black Belt at the age of 13.
Antonia is the first Lil Dragon member from Miller’s Shotokan to become a black belt. She was also among the first group of females, which included Jessica Pearce, and Mariah Garman-Brown to earn the rank of black belt for Miller’s Shotokan as well.
