Mrs. Brooke Decker
I am the woman behind the scenes at Five Rings! You will occasionally find me on the mats helping to teach the Little Dragons or filling in for an instructor with the Tigers, but my main responsibilities lie within the realm of the front desk. I am often the person taking care of billing, scheduling and organizing events.
My background is in teaching, having earned a degree in biology, environmental science and geography education from UW-Platteville in 2005. I am certified to teach middle and high school students in Wisconsin and did so between 2005 and 2019 mostly at Pacelli Catholic Schools in Stevens Point. In the spring of 2019 I chose to leave teaching to pursue a career with The Boys & Girls Club of Portage County as their Membership Coordinator.
Owning a business with your significant other is not an easy feat, but Steve and I complement each other with our individual strengths. For example, while he has lots of big ideas, I am better at working out the details and logistics. Since we began Five Rings Martial Arts in 2013 we have grown and learned a lot. We enjoy what we do and feel blessed to have such a supporting community!
