Happy Monday!


This past weekend Mitch and Ezra took the next step in their training. They tested inthe MKG Method Phase program. Although testing in our adult programs is NOT mandatory, it can be a huge benefit to your development.

These gentlemen did great! The preparation that they put in leading up to the test was evident. I am very proud of the development and growth both of them have made. Keep it up!

If you are interested in testing in any of our programs contact Josh to get the details.

Congratulations, Mitch and Ez!
