Happy Monday!

As of February 3rd

Another Schedule Change . . . ?

Yes, but there are not as many changes as you would think. We tried a different way of approaching our Focus Classes and to be honest, it didn't work as well as we liked. So, we are adjusting.

Please  read the schedule to see if/how the changes effect your training schedule but, here are the highlights . . .

MKG Kids and Littles Changes

  • MKG Kids and Littles have not changed.

Foundations and Fitness Program Changes

  • Stick To It will begin at 5:15 pm to align with the Kickboxing Essential.

Phase Program Changes

  • The Phase 1 class has moved to 6:00 pm instead of 5:45 pm. Still right after S.T.I.
  • We have moved our Phase 2 class to Monday and Wednesdays at 7:00 pm (Same time, different days). We have also added a Saturday Phase 2 class at 11:30 pm

Focus Class Changes

We have consolidated the 2 options of each class back into one each week.

  • Panantukan and JKD will remain at their curren days and times. (6:00 pm Monday and Wednesday, respectively.)

What's going on this week"


This unit we talked about Respect.

What is respect? It kind of hard to define, so for us it means;

"Being thankful for the people in our lives and also being thankful for the things they do for us."

This week we will be Reviewing the 3 areas of Respect!

 *** Respecting those in Authority - Being a First Time Listener ***

*** Respecting your Peers - The Golden Rule ***

 *** Respecting Yourself - giving 100 % Effort in everything you do ***

Focus of the Week!

This week we will be learn about the effects of Bullying.
