Notice: New Temporary Class Location!

Due to the closing of the Krav Maga Center on Cumberland, we are in a transitional phase as we look for a new home. However, the weather is beginning to cooperate as we move into the Fall months, so outdoor classes have again become a possibility.

We will meet at Williamson Park from 6:30 to 8:00. See everyone there!

Monthly Focus: Behind the Mirror drills

A reference to Konrad Lorenz’s deep study on the nature of consciousness, ‘Behind the Mirror’ is a block of material designed to frustrate us by breaking the habits that many Kali practitioners develop over years of pattern training! Instead of working in mirror patterns where the right meets the right, left meets the left, and so on, expect to deal with incoming strikes with a variety of blocks, merges, and follows with either hand. If this drives you batty, fear not! That is the aim of this training. As Guro Crafty Dog would say “it it important to laugh at yourself” [when integrating training of this kind.] See everyone on Tuesday!
