More about the instructors:
- Sensei/Sifu: Sharyl Geisert, is the chief instructor at White Tiger Karate, a child development center, teaching Skillz, Pai Lum kung fu, and Karate. She has been educating children for the past 40 years and enjoys it just as much now as she did when she started. Her unique blend of life experiences have given her an ability to reach many diverse individuals by serving her community in positions of recreation therapist, teacher, coach, fire fighter/EMT, and youth care specialist. She has a Bachelor of Arts in Physical Education and Health and a Masters of Science in Recreation and Leisure with Therapeutic Recreation as her specialty. She is the area leader in child development including specialties in autism, ADHD, ADD, behavioral issues, anger management, and physical adaptations. Sensei Sharyl is happy to have a partnership with outstanding professional groups in the medical field including Health First Family Care Center, Genesis Behavioral Health, and Spaulding Youth Center.
- El Labrie is a student under Sensei Sharyl and quickly showed her leadership abilities in classes, landing her a spot on the child development leadership team- STORM. Since that day, she has participated in weekly, monthly, and annual SKILLZ child development seminars understanding the psychology of children. El continued to elevate her teaching skills and was promoted to assistant instructor, then to lead instructor, to leading the martial arts program at TTCC. El embraces her Pai Lum kung fu with a deep passion, grace, and strength that is a joy to watch. She loves sharing this passion with the students she teaches and the classes she participates in. We look forward to her continued success at WTK and TTCC.

Her up beat personality, authenticy, personal experience, along with her educational prowess in pre-k through grade three has made Alison a favorite with our young students as well as the parents.
