Monthly Newsletter - July 2021

Welcome Back!

First Month Fully Reopened

Well, it has been a long time coming, but we are fully open and operating without any Covid related restrictions! Woot!

And we kicked it off with a bang! Guro Rick Faye joined us for his first seminar in over a year! It was great to see so many folks in person! It made me feel like we actually made it through.

Thank you, Guro Rick, Guro Linda, and everyone that made it out for this great weekend!

The awesomeness continued with great classes! It is fantastic to get back to normal with training. I've been filled with gratitude and pride to see everyone training.

There have been some of the biggest classes we have in over a year. I believe this is only the beginning! Summer is generally a slower time for martial arts classes because of vacations and such. That much more with everyone feeling safer to return to traveling, seeing family, and just getting away. So, I believe that bigger classes are even yet to come. I am excited to see you!

Special Offer for Returning Students!

We look forward to seeing you back on the mats!

If you were a student with us before the pandemic and we would love to have you back. There is no pressure. Things may have changed for you over the last year, but I wanted you to know that you are missed and I would love to have you train with us again. To welcome you back to MKG Madison, we would love to extend a special offer.

When you re-enroll with one of our membership options:

  • We will lock in your Pre Pandemic membership prices!
  • And your first month is FREE!

Let us know if you're ready to get back on the mats!

More Exciting Changes at the Gym!

Finally, New Mats!

These new mats will provide additional safety and cleanliness while training.

They are soooo nice.
