About Sensei Benny Gonzalez
Benny started karate 36 years ago after she was mugged in an elevator and felt helpless by the ordeal. She is currently a sensei, which is 4th degree black belt, studying Josan Lu Karate under Shuseki Shihan Sana in Garwood, NJ.
In addition to teaching karate whenever possible, she also teaches self defense regularly.
I think it is important for everyone, especially women and children, to be more assertive in certain situations. My motto is “it is better to know it and not need it, then need it and not know it.”
Benny has been a member at Salus for about 5 years and also attends with her husband and son as well. We think she’s pretty amazing!
I would love to add that Salus is the perfect complement to my karate. Since I started CrossFit, my upper body and kicks are stronger. I also have more energy which is something I thought at my age would not happen. I am thankful for the opportunity to give something back to this wonderful community and would like to thank my inspirational teachers.
