Mariea Snyder, an ALLCHOICE Insurance customer, is the new World Amateur Kickbox Champion. Over the weekend of July 25th, Mariea, and her husband/trainer Steve Snyder, traveled to Orlando, FL to compete for the International Kickboxing Federation Championship in the bantam weight division. Although, Mariea had previously won numerous kickboxing fights and titles, winning the prestigious IKF Championship is most definitely the crown jewel (or belt) in her collection.
Mariea & Steve Snyder own one of the most prominent Martial Arts Studios in the Triad, Living Defense Martial Arts. LDMA offers full complement of Martial Arts including TaeKwon Do, Kickboxing, and true Brazilian JiuJitsu. Mariea’s crowning as the IKF’s World Champion lends further credibility to LDMA’s programs and instructors.
On a personal note, I have been training a LDMA for a little over a year, and have seen the hard work and determination that went into Mariea’s training and she should be commended. The Snyder’s run a 1st class Martial Arts Studio, and more importantly they are 1st class individuals.
