Co-Founder and Chief Operating Officer
Kerensa Haney is the wife of Grandmaster Leonard Haney and has been the administrative side of UKC since it's inception. Between Grandmaster Haney's martial arts expertise and her varied background in business, graphic/web design and marketing, working together they have been able to bring their vision to fruition.
Kerensa is a licensed real estate agent, working with Grey Haven Real Estate Agency.
She has previously worked in corporate management, television Internet Marketing & Development, worked as a Ministry Executive Director and has owned businesses that ranged from web design, to videography to owner/editor of her own magazine. Working with the magazine took her from the private offices of the legendary Coach Bobby Bowden for an intimate interview with Coach and his wife Ann, to interviewing Former Governor Jeb Bush at the Governors Mansion and many interesting places and faces in between.
Kerensa is a Christian, believing in Jesus Christ as THE only way to salvation and a life full of passion and purpose. She firmly believes that nothing is ever out of the realm of possiblity when you are following the path that God has for you and there is nothing more exciting than seeing the path unfold.
Despite a life full of exciting career opportunities, Kerensa's true happiness lies in her family. She has been married to her high school sweetheart, Grandmaster Leonard Haney for 33 years.
She is so excited to have her FIRST grandbaby, Miss Everly Cole.
Everly is the daughter of Leandria, who achieved her blackbelt in June 2017 and is married to Chris.
Her son, Sensei Dalton is 3rd Dan and is married to Beth! They are both in ministry at Gracepointe Community Church.
The resident UKC karate dog is Gretl, but we have recently added two more to the family, Dobby and Heidi.
