Sensei Choy Estes

Sensei Chollanna, nickname Choy, started her martial arts training in 1973 at College of the Redwoods with Sensei Ben Patterson. While doing Jujutsu and Judo she discovered  she loved to compete in Judo. After a couple years she started competing on a National level which she did for 10 years, until starting a family.


Choy never stopped training in Jujitsu, which she refers to as "the Mother Art," and she competed in Kata.


Choy loves teaching beginners and Children and is currently in charge of the junior program at Shin Budo Kai.  She is an inspiration and role model to the girls and women in our dojo.
