Coach Trichilo I am a second-degree black belt. I started my journey at Five Star in 2014! I remember like it was yesterday sitting on the side, watching my daughter Hannah￼, train. Thinking to myself “I want to train on those mats, it looks like fun and a great work out at the same time”, “I want to be part of the team”, “I want to earn my first-degree black belt and possibly my third”, I want to be an instructor”. I knew deep down that’s what I wanted to do. It was one of the best decisions I’ve made for myself! Now, here I am currently striving to achieve my third-degree black belt this year! ￼ I have been teaching for six years. I love to see each students progress. To be able to help them through their journey is special to me. It’s a feeling like no other, always puts a smile on my face, makes me so proud of them to see them achieve their next goal. My goal, for our students is to help them to overcome their obstacles, to know their strengths, and when they put their mind to it, they can achieve it. To wake up every day with a positive mindset. Five star has impacted my life in many ways. It has developed my character making me stronger mentally, and physically. Taught me self discipline, self defense, to push myself harder beyond what I thought were my limits and has built my confidence. I will continue to live by the principles of black belt!
