Our Sensei is LT Wimberley-Helmick, a 4th degree black belt in the Chuck Norris System, (Chun Kuk Do), with 40 years of training and teaching experience. She also has trained in the styles of Tang Soo Do, TKD, Shotokan, Krav Maga and BJJ. She has taught Martial Arts in Texas, Nevada, California and traveled to guest teach in schools throughout the US and in Brazil. She has worked with students aged 3 through 70. She holds M.Ed, B.A. and A.S. degrees in Education, Kinesiology, Physical Education/Recreation & Criminal Justice.
Our motto ‘the possibilities are endless…’ comes from Sensei. She was an avid athlete and competitor in many sports starting at the age of 5. At 36 she suffered a spinal injury which sidelined her from physical activity for over a decade but she kept active as a coach, even from a wheelchair. She worked hard for four years learning to walk and move again, without falling, and was able to return to active competition in karate in 2011. She opened Infinitus to help others to become their best in all aspects of their lives. She knows that Martial Arts has so much more to offer, than the physical techniques, and is an excellent complement to any other sport as well. Teaching is what drives her to work hard each day. She knows from her experience that life is what you put into it regardless what happens along the way.
Sensei has resided in Hewitt since 1998 with, her husband of 30 years, Pete, along with her father, Grandsir , two dogs and their chickens. Her grown kids Becca, Sami, Ky and Deeds live with their spouses in Austin, CA and VA.
