Melanie Murphy, Sensei, started her study of the martial arts in 1975 and became owner and director of Way of the Crane in 1989. She has trained hundreds of students ranging in age from 5 to 65. Sensei Murphy has excellent credentials in teaching martial arts and self defense to men, women, children, seniors and the developmentally disabled. Her passion for sharing her knowledge, her giving nature, sense of humor, and her genuine desire to see all her pupils succeed make every single class an enjoyable one. While honoring the discipline, respect, trust and hard work that is needed to learn a martial art, she fosters a dojo that above all else is a safe environment for all students.
