Conferences, workshops, hands-on seminars, as well as full-contact tournaments (as participant and as judge), and point tournaments (participant and judge), have all contributed to her expertise. She directed her own demonstrations for numerous events in the Santa Cruz/Monterey area. Ms. Minor's most intense and beneficial martial arts training involved her LimaLama workouts with her instructor, Mr. Tino Tuiolosega, Grandmaster and Founder of LimaLama Arts of Self-Defense. This spanned 12 years. She put in over 26,000 hours with Mr. Tuiolosega, with its emphasis on full-contact fighting. Her training partners were all male Black Belt level students. This training required inner strength, physical power with the right skills, and spiritual guidance. It was a true life-changer.
