Erica has been training in Krav Maga since 2018 when she moved to DC from Massachusetts to pursue her PhD. She was a Division I swimmer during her undergraduate studies and a rower whilst pursuing her Masters Degree in England. She first joined CDK to learn self-defense and stay in shape. She instantly loved the enthusiasm, dedication, and support of the CDK family. When DJ asked her to be an instructor, she jumped at the chance to share that same experience with her students. Her favorite aspect of teaching is watching brand new level one students gain the skills and knowledge to protect themselves and the confidence to persist through chaos. Erica is currently a Phase A certified Krav Maga Worldwide instructor.
