Zaria Benedetto

zaria-benedettoZaria began training in Samurai Sport Sword in the summer of 2013. As a petite girl she wanted assurance she could defend herself. Training under Master Z and his wife Chris, she quickly gained confidence and respect from her fellow competitors. Zaria has won a few local tournaments in both forms and sparring. She is proficient with short and long swords, knives, bo staffs, and nunchakus.

Zaria is a straight “A” student on the highest honor roll and plays the trumpet in her school’s band. She is an avid soccer player and has been the top scorer in her league. She loves to sing and has been performing in front of large audiences since the age of 5. She currently volunteers weekly at church singing and teaching younger children.
