Eileen Rappold in Norton - Personal Best Karate

Eileen Rappold

My name is Eileen Rappold and I am a 4th Degree Black Belt. Twenty-one years ago, my husband and I began our journey in the martial arts. We were looking for something active we could do together and everything up to that point had brought frustration and arguments. You see, my husband was a complete athlete, and myself… not so much. I would get so discouraged because I felt I could never keep up with him. On a whim, we started with the trial at the Personal Best. I remember so vividly saying to myself in our first introductory lesson, “What did I get myself into?” Boy was that an understatement!  I had no idea where it would lead, but I felt that if the Personal Best approach to marital arts training could take a total non-athletic adult such as myself and make me love the martial arts and the peace, fitness and confidence it provides, I needed to be a part of helping others in the same way. 

In 2001, my husband and I joined the Personal Best Karate organization and opened a school in Easton. For the past 14 years we have had the blessing of meeting and working with so many wonderful students, young children to teens and adults. It is so gratifying to watch students grow their confidence self-discipline, improve their lifestyle habits and get closer to maximizing their full potential.  Having a person on your team that is as passionate about you achieving your goals as you are is a huge advantage.   I am thankful every day to have a career I love and grateful for the families who put their trust in us to help them achieve their goals.
