Sue's martial arts career started with some training in karate in high school, where she met Tom Sipin, and as she says, the rest is a very long history. Since then her major art has been making tournaments, demonstrations, fundraisers, and cultural events run smoothly. She's a tireless promoter of the FMA, though unlike her husband Tom or son Kelii, she tends not to hold formal organizational titles. If you've been at a Sipin-run event, though, you know the answer to many questions is found through the magic words: "Ask Sue." Sue tends to avoid the limelight even as her work keeps the lights on, but if you look carefully you can sometimes spot her on the Four Winds Martial Arts FB page.
