Nikita started with Kickboxing for fitness nearly ten years ago. Through Kickboxing Nikita developed a love for Muay Thai. She met her husband Israel in Atlanta while training Muay Thai and a couple of years later became an assistant. The love of Muay Thai has led Nikita to train across the globe which includes the original Killer Bees team in Curitiba and Santa Catrina Brazil.
Nikita left the medical field to open American Killer Bees (AKB) Melbourne with her husband Israel and partner Rumi. Since opening the gym Nikita has quickly earned popularity with her dynamic and fun Cardio Kickboxing classes. All this comes with its challenges, however, Nikita is a good example of balancing being a business owner, wife, and mother of two beautiful children Valentina and Banyan.
