Krav Maga Detroit Weekly Update

We Forge Warriors - October 4, 2021


Level 3 Test

Friday, October 22


Kids Halloween Class

Saturday, October 30

12PM - 1PM


The halls of KMD shook last Friday night with determination, grit, and bells as each tester successfully completed their Level 1! Congratulations to each one of you! You trained hard, prepared, and proved to everyone present (hopefully including yourselves) what it means to fight and develop a Krav Maga mindset. Your instructors were all very impressed and proud! You earned that patch!

Thanks to everyone who showed up to support and be entertained. The testers thrive off your energy and encouragement. Events like these continue to prove to all of us that we are a family, and we show up for each other. Thank you.

KMD Family "Why" Board: 

We would like to start a new tradition at KMD - a KMD Family "WHY" board. Each one of us found KMD and Krav Maga for some reason. It is important to always remember that reason when we train. Your "why" is what will help you do one more push up, send one more punch... and what will keep you fighting for your life.

In order to help remind ourselves and each other "WHY" we train, we are turning the corkboard by the front desk into a WHY board. Pictures, phrases, mementos etc can be put on this board. There it can be seen each time you walk onto the training floor, and by each new member who is trying to figure out why to train. 

Please keep these items to no larger than one 4x6 photo, phrase, collage, or item. There will be pin tacks at the front desk to hang your items. Or you can email your "WHY" to Mallory at: malbrake02@gmail.com - so she can print them off and hang them for you!

I hope everyone participates and we fill this entire board up until we need to add another!

Keep Training.
