Debi D’Amato has been teaching martial arts for over 31 years at American Heritage Schools. Teaching martial arts has been one of the greatest joys of her life because she believes working with children is a rewarding, valuable, and life-changing experience. She has been very fortunate to have the amazing opportunity to watch so many of her students grow into successful, caring individuals, some of whom now even have children of their own. As a dedicated black belt, she has spent the last 31 years designing a program to teach children about kid safety, respect, and discipline in an environment filled with exercise and fun. She is beyond excited to have her martial arts program be a part of the American Heritage Schools Summer Camp Programs.
Kaitlen Annett has over 25 years of martial arts experience. Her journey began when she was in first grade at American Heritage Schools with Mrs. Debi. Mrs. Debi introduced her to Karate and taught her invaluable lessons about the sport and life. She is proud to say that she became the very first Black Belt at American Heritage Schools. Martial arts gave her an opportunity to work on her mind and body together which became a very important part of who she is today. She is excited to be a part of this American Heritage Schools Summer Martial Arts Program.
