Sensei Rijana Puljic

Sensei Rijana Puljic


Sensei Rijana has always known Xen-Do from a young age. It all started when her dad saw a poster in Camden and signed his daughter for a free trial class in our Junior Champs class. More than 15 years lately, Sensei Rijana has continued her passion for kickboxing and now she can proudly say she has achieved her 1st Dan belt, and trains weekly in Dai Master Rafael’s class.

At 9 years old Sensei Rijana took part in an interclub competition. Xen-Do arranged for all the younger students to get the chance to compete against one another, over seen by Master Raf and Sensei Anthony. Out of all the children that day, Rijana being the youngest of the group and the only girl, she took home second place. Confirming she has always been a force to be reckoned with.

Since becoming an instructor Sensei Rijana has loved meeting new people with every student that comes in. However, she finds teaching our Little and Junior champs a great part to her day, seeing their progress and the joy when that combination clicks and they receive their belt, (and you never know what they are going to say).

Sensei Rijana though being born and bred in Camden, her family is originally from Bosnia, where they go every summer without fail (with the except of the world going into a lockdown).
