At Suntree Martial Arts, our goal is self-development. We have chosen to use the means of excellent martial arts, life coaching, and more to further our passion: helping people.
Ms. Morgan Frechette (Sensei)
Owner-Founder, Head Instructor
Sensei Morgan has been training in Shorin Ryu karate for fifteen years and holds a 3rd Dan under Sensei Juan Queris of Winter Haven Budokai. She spent 2009 and 2010 competing almost weekly throughout the Midwest and won several championship titles. She also holds a Level III Instructor rank in Krav Maga under Mr. Dustin Koppel of National Martial Arts. Sensei Morgan’s ultimate goal is to help others. She has devoted much of her time to her involvement in local non-profits: Guardian ad Litem, Nana’s House Children’s Home, and serving on the board of directors for Children’s Home Society of Florida.
She was raised in a family with Autism and naturally gravitates towards uniquely-capable individuals. Sensei Morgan has served on many levels within the special needs community and is thrilled with the opportunity to bring martial arts to them. Additionally, she holds a Bachelor of Arts in Music Production from Berklee College of Music and has a strong background in sales, management, and entrepreneurship.
