Naomi Even-Aberle

Black belt. Artist. Woman. Words not often seen in the same sentence, let alone in the same woman. Naomi break boards with her body, trains with a sharp sword and advocates for youth education and community development through the martial arts. As an active educator, Naomi has seen first hand the inequalities in her community, the education systems that impact her students, their families and community on a daily basis. Naomi is on a mission; a mission to utilize her love of the martial arts to connect to her community.

Naomi Even-Aberle introduces us to her community: her gym. She shares how impactful it can be to take part in the successes, failures, and challenges of her students and peers as well as their extending support systems.
