Si Jai Stefania Maxwell

Stef has been training at Head Academy since she was 8 years old (in 2011) and once she attained the rank of Junior Black Sash she joined the instructor program at age 12.

Instructing is a huge passion for Stef who loves the friendly community at Head Academy, and she was thrilled to be able to contribute to this community through her instruction by making all her students feel safe, comfortable, as well as disciplined and committed to their training. Needless to say, she’s made some lifelong friends here.

Having started her kung fu journey as a child herself, Stef recognises the value in all the programs Head Academy delivers – particularly the PROTECT program and the Black sash process – having experienced firsthand how much personal growth and development went hand-in-hand with the martial training.
