She earned her Instructor's Certification in early 2020, and achieved the rank of Shodan Black Belt in June, 2022.  Caron teaches the Monday evenings Jiu Jitsu classes.  Her class emphasizes fundamentals of the art. The goal is to both prepare absolute beginners so they can participate in regular classes with confidence and strong skills and to help more advanced students practice and improve their basic skills.  She also oversees an open mat class right after her class so students can have extra time work on their skills.
