We have heard your suggestions for adult classes on Mondays and Wednesdays during our MKG Kids Classes. So, they are back! 

Starting Monday January, 7th 

Monday - Stick to it at 5:15 pm

Wednesday - Kickboxing Essentials at 5:15 pm.


The “MKG 60” is a new version of the “MKG One Hour Test”. The MKG 60 will consist of 60 minutes of movement drilling components for the MKG curriculum based on various arts. Panantukan, Muay Thai, Kali, Jun Fan are some. A tester may use combinations of kali sticks, focus mitts, and/or thai pads for 60 full minutes. Each MKG 60 tester will train for the full 60 minutes. There will be a break for holders, then the MKG 60 will resume with the change for the martial artist testing for the next 60 minutes.

MKG 60 will be a simultaneous World Wide Event. Sunday, May 5th, 2019 MKG Madison will join in this event with other MKG Branches from all over the globe! Each branch will be video streaming their school during the annual MKG UK Camp in Calshot, England, United Kingdom. 

Well, here are a few Facebook posts on how Guro Rick Faye would describe MKG 60! 

Starting Tuesday, January 8th we will be beginning MKG 60 training classes. These classes will be Tuesdays and Thursdays at 5:00 pm and then Saturdays at 10:15 am. During these classes we will be exploring what MKG 60 will look like for us and allowing everyone learn some of the fundamental drills that can be used during the MKG 60 event.

Everyone is welcome to train even if you are not interested in joining us for the actual event. 

To learn more about this class you are welcome to join us for on January 8th 5 pm for our initial meeting and further explanation.

Beginning Saturday, January 12th there will be a SINGLE MKG KIDS CLASS on Saturdays. This class will be held at 9:30 - 10:15 am

(right after the MKG Littles Class).

We hope this change will help to help to build our MKG Kids Community.  This will also give our more advanced students a chance to work with our newer students and serve a s good role models for training.

We have finally started receiving "normal" Wisconsin weather here in the Madison area.

We just want to remind you of our Winter Weather Closing Policy. If the Madison Area School District cancels/early release classes due to inclement weather MKG Madison WILL CANCEL CLASSES for the evening.

As always, safety for our students is our #1 priority. SO, if you feel that it is safer for you to stay home even if the gym is open for classes then, by all means, STAY HOME AND STAY SAFE. If you have time or would like to send us a message to let us know, we would appreciate it. But, it is NOT necessary.

We look forward to seeing you all in classes this week! So get in here and get your reps in!

As always, we will be Training Safe, Training Hard and Having a ton of Fun!

Don’t miss out! See you at the gym!

Josh, Ruth and the MKG Staff
