Sarah is the head instructor for the Women’s Only Program. She has had countless amateur matches in San-Shou (kickboxing with takedowns) and has won the most international medals in Jiu-Jitsu of any female in the Okanagan. She teaches with passion, intensity and incredible experience, building an incomparable women’s program. 

"I started training in 2005, competed and continued training until 2011 and then moved to Kelowna to be business partners with Jorden Reichenbach. I love competing and training because of the raw honesty it brings. There are no shortcuts, no ways to ‘fake’ what you can and cannot do or what you know. It all comes down to hard work. This is why the rewards from Jiu-Jitsu are something to be very proud of, and for me so worth it. The skills, experience and passion of training over the years is what I seek to instill in my students through my instruction at Pacific Top Team. My greatest enjoyment is to watch the journey each student takes from the first time they step onto the mats to the transformation they make and the improved quality of life they end up with. Pacific Top Team is my home and second family. As our team grows in strength and numbers it only gets better."
