September, 2018 - Updates and Events


A note on Positive Self-Image - As martial artists, we measure ourselves and others based upon what we do, not just what we think or believe in the moment. It all starts with a question - “What have I accomplished? How am I or anyone else better off through my actions?"

Our Youth Quality of Champions is Speed - Speed to decide, relative speed in competition compared to a training partner or opponent, and explosive speed in our individual technique. 

Billing Requests - Please bring any billing issues to the front desk or communicate through e-mail. We want to be responsive, but have missed things that were sent by text or Facebook Messenger. You deserve good service, and direct communication in person or by phone ensures you get it.

We have blocked Saturday, September 15 for Krav Maga Brown/Black belt testing. Here’s the situation: I’ve made many changes to the base curriculum in the past 12 months.


I’d like to use this day for a full curriculum review. I plan to recognize the first SDG brown and black belts in calendar year 2018, and the criteria for passing will be part of this training day.

The cost of this seminar is $100 for the day. We will start at 10:00am, have lunch together, and finish no later than 4:00pm.
