MKG 30 for 30 Challenge!

The MKG 30 for 30 Challenge is a MKG International initiative to encourage everyone to move with in their art for 30 mins every day for 30 days straight!

Your 30 for 30 can look like what ever you want. The goal is to develop a habit of individual movement for 30 mins non-stop everyday.

Do anything you know.

  • Footwork
  • Stick Drills
  • Shadow boxing
  • Heavy Bag Work
  • Ground movements
  • anything . . .  

You can do it at any pace you want, from hard and fast to get a heavy sweat or slow and meditative to clear you mind.

Just move!

Catalog your thoughts, changes and insights. Encourage others by posting updates of your MKG 30 for 30 journey  in the MKG Madison Community Facebook Page. Search and add #mkg30430 connect with other MKGers around the world!

You can start your challenge at anytime you want. So have already started! Josh will be talking about MKG 30 for 30 in class this week to help you get started on your own journey.

And we are officially back!

We missed you guys!

Thank you for the support.

As weird as is sounds it was hard to leave your guys and the gym for this short getaway.

We are so thankful for our MKG Madison family. Knowing the at the classes were in good hands and everyone was excited for us to take a little break made it a lot easier for us to go.

We want to thank everyone that took the reigns for classes and at the desk this past week, your guys are awesome!

Make sure to thank these folks for taking on some extra responsibility to keep the gym move smoothly.

MKG Madison Adult Classes

Get ahead of the game and see what we will be working on!

New Schedule / New Classes

Starting September 3rd

Taking the next step.

We adding a new set of classes after each Kickboxing Essentials Class.

There will be a new kickboxing class that will "Focus" on the striking perspective of our focus classes. You will be able to get a great workout on the focus mitts/thai pads from a different perspective without the other aspects of the arts that may be intimidating.

Then after these classes there will be a class that will "Focus" on the study of the more detailed (and possibly intimidating) aspects of these arts.

These changes are being made to provide are a more clear and seamless path of development for those that are looking for it.

You are NOT required to take these paths. As always, training of martial arts is an "Intensely Personal Persute - Bruce Lee". You are welcome to attend whatever classes that you have interest and/or work with your rhythm of life.
