Geri Sears

A native of San Diego, Geri, a figure skating champion, is honored to utilize the discipline of her fifteen years of former training to benefit the instruction of her young students in 4S Ranch. Becoming a martial artist later in life and multiple wins in the forms and weapons division of USSD’s National Championships, has helped to exemplify to students both young and old that you can be successful at anything, you just have to not be afraid to try, be 100% present and never give up. Teaching at 4S Ranch has given her the opportunity to see children grow not only in the martial arts, but at life as well. Ms. Geri “loves to see that ‘lightbulb’ moment; when the students expression reveals such joy at their accomplishment. Training with Team focus has been an incredible confidence booster for all of our students and an incredible rewarding experience to be an instructor”.

Stefanie Alberts

Stefanie started her martial arts career in New York at 31, one year after giving birth to triplets; two boys and one girl.  After moving to California in 2005, she decided not to pursue a career in the dental field as originally planned and instead purchased 50% of the studio she started training at in Escondido.  Realizing the impact such a program could have on the lives of her students' and families, she opened her own studios in 4s Ranch and Scripps Ranch with the United Studios of Self Defense franchise in order to establish the martial arts as a lifestyle instead of an extra curricular activity.  With an extensive life skills/character development program and personalized instruction for all students, her studios have been able to instruct men, women and children of all ages and limitations; regardless of educational, emotional or physical disabilities; creating a 'Fighting Spirit Ring' at USSD tournaments for the disabled.Her mantra "Martial Arts may not be for everyone, but self-defense is" has given her the privilege to instruct at countless groups, organizations, schools, and companies across San Diego, most often free of charge.  Presently, Stefanie has developed a not for profit that will allow children of deployed military personnel to train for free while providing supportive services to the spouse as well as the transitioning veteran; including education and employment opportunities to help them get started in their civilian life.
