Instructor Sienna Parocha loves martial arts and wants to share her passion with everyone. She is the 2023 US Open MMA (sport) Champion and has won multiple Jiu-jitsu competitions. She continues to train, challenge, and better herself everyday mentally, physically, and spiritually.
“At a young age I was always fascinated with watching any and all karate/martial arts movies. Inspirations to me were Bruce lee, Jackie Chan, Donnie Yen, Michelle Yeoh, Chuck Noris, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Jet Li, Sylvester Stallone(Rocky), Gal Gadot, Keanu Reeves (John Wick), and many more. I became so mesmerized by the amazing skills these actors performed on the big screen, so I begged my mom to find me any teacher. I studied under three prior instructors until I found the perfect fit at Zone Martial Arts! The Ekholm Family welcomed me with open arms and have forever changed my life! I have learned so much knowledge and continue to learn everyday from Master Mr. Ekholm, thank you sir. Most of all I thank Jesus for guiding me here. I give God all the credit and thank Him for using me to help so many people.”
Ms. Parocha’s life verse is Philippians 4:13, I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
With a three year background in school teaching, Ms. Parocha is an excellent, patient, and kind Instructor that understands everyone learns at their own pace. Her passion is to make sure that anyone, whether they are small, tall, big, old, young, weak, or strong, can defend themselves from any possible threats or danger.
