|| It's all a Blur in my single
My name is Laura Kamienski. Welcome to my home page. Here is a bit about me...
MOUNTAIN BIKING: I've recently decided to live the dream and am moving to Tucson AZ!
I love to ride bike, mostly my mountain bike, Mattie -- yah, I name my bikes! Mattie is my dream bike -- she's a grey Santa Cruz - Blur. I love this bike! Check out our (yes, Mattie and my) 2006 vacation photos! I also have a Cannondale R600 Sport road bike (Clara), a Cannondale Caffiene 29er (Cleopatra), and a Marin B-17 dirt jumper called Cassie.
Mattie - It's all a Blur!
The destination is not the purpose of a journey.
Death is not the purpose of life.

I teach a
traditional martial arts program with an emphasis on women's
needs and concerns in self defense. Kicks Martial Arts for Women is a
of the Association of Women
Arts Instructors, the National
Martial Arts Federation, and the International Taekwon-do Union.
Check out my
first book Training
the Martial Arts: A Special Journey, which I co-wrote
with Sabum Nim Jennifer Lawler.
On March 1, 2001 I officially opened the doors to my women's only dojang, "Kicks Martial Arts For Women." Due to some very complicated life circumstances Kicks closed in 2008. To all of my former students: I miss you very much and wish you the best in all you do. Please stay in touch!
Must love dogs!

Philosophers have only interpreted the world in various ways. The point is to change it.

I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in philosophy from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania (thus the tartan background.) My main interests are political philosophy and logic.
After a twenty year hiatus, I'm back in school. I have begun graduate studies in philosophy at West Chester University of Pennsylvania.
