"Alyssa taught the kids at my Emotions Camp and had a real connection and loving command with them right outta the gates. You know how slippery and pissy teens can be, and Alyssa just cut right through that bullshit and got 'em engaged in the work- which is in total alignment with my camps, my company, and my own teaching style and values. I am VERY selective about who I hire to work with my students, and I will definitely be asking Alyssa to work with me, to work with them again. She's a pro!"

Whaddup! I’m Alyssa, a Competitive MMA Athlete (SBG to AKA),
Pro DBT (Emotional Intelligence) coach under UnorthoDocs Inc., and the Founder and Head Coach at KURTZ MMA. Throughout my career I have become a Jiu Jitsu World League Multi-Gold Medalist, received the MuayThai AFS Certificate out of American Kickboxing Academy, I've been nominated for Ms. Health & Fitness 2022, completed SBGi NorCal‘s intensive Martial Arts Coaching Course, and have been featured on top-charting podcasts with millions of downloads- Self-Helpless, I F*cking Knew, Life Coach Baker, Thoughts from the Couch, and more!
Early in life, I hardcore suffered with C-PTSD and mental health. I was self-harming, suicidal, entertaining RISSSKAYYY self-destructive behaviors, and all around just a miserable mess of a human, imprisoned by all of my trauma & lack of tools to cope with all that was going down in my young life. Rock bottom galore! In n’ out of different psych wards, holding facilities, and residentials. No fun dude. . . and just when I thought I was about to tralala off into the sunset of the afterlife…I discovered a MAGICAL combo of Dialectical Behavior Therapy and Mixed Martial Arts that totally SAVED my ass! Not only saved me, but taught me how to take back my power, nurture my authenticity, and become an active participant in my life again. Which was pretty sweet, because It’s EXHAUSTING being your traumas b*tch! The power of DBS and Self-Defense in the process of healing trauma is no joke. I observed through my own experience that there were huge gaps being neglected in the traditional approaches. Those gaps were:
1- willingness to meet me WHERE I WAS AT
2-REALNESS (willingness to lovingly call me on my own bullsh*t for my own sake)
3-getting the BODY involved in the process.
This is why I created The Kurtz Method. Check out our services below including
