about Lila

I first started training in the martial art of Kuk Sool Won™ 21 years ago, today holding the rank of 4th Degree Black Belt and in training for my Masters.

For more than 18 years I have also practiced the healing art of Frequency Energy Medicine™. I created Action Awareness Training in 2000, building a unique self-defense and empowerment program on the foundational wisdoms and practices of both traditions.

I'm currently studying nutrition at the University of Natural Medicine and I’ve written several books – one of them, Quiet Mind, Warrior Spirit, garnered Honorable Mention Awards at the San Francisco and New York Book Festivals. And another – Street Sense for Children - landed on the USA Best Books list. I am excited to release my two newest titles in 2019.

As an abuse survivor, I originally entered the martial arts and healing worlds with a determination to reclaim my power and learn the skills to protect myself and my two children. I learned to turn my abuse from defining me to driving me to make a difference in the lives of women around the globe.





It’s your life. 

You deserve to live it, well. With strength. With passion and purpose. With your quiet mind and warrior spirit.
You don’t have to be ready. You just have to be willing.
