MSKM on WREG Channel 3’s Live at 9 News Show

Another great job by our very own MSKM Instructors Ralph and Melissa Norwood. It is very difficult to be on LIVE TV and they did a great job. The news have been covering the MPDs adoption of Krav Maga for their officer’s defensive tactics system. MSKM brought Krav Maga to Memphis over 10 years ago and have been helping to make Memphians safer ever since. We are very excited that local law enforcement is getting on board with this great self defense system.

Ready to Fight? New Fight Series Starts February 6th.

Boxing DogStarting February 6th – we will start our next fight series including both Introduction to Fight AND Advanced Fight. Head Instructor Patrick Terry and experienced Instructor John Covington will work tougher to lead both classes simultaneously.  The entire will spend some time working separately and also come together at times as well.  This will allow for everyone who wants to participate in fight to be included in this next fight series.

So what is our fight program?  Here we combine Krav Maga striking and defensive principles in a free-style format.  The purpose of our fight series is to take your training to the next level by applying what you have been learning in regular classes in a safe environment where actual contact is made in fight situations.  Training involves techniques from multiple levels of the Krav Maga curriculum.  There are many benefits to this training – one main one being the opportunity to learn to take actual contact in a safe environment. Many have never actually been punched or kicked.  This environment emphasizes using levels of power and control when making contact with your partner so everyone can learn what it feels like to be hit and know that it is OK and that you can stay in a fight!

Our fight series starts and ends as a group so that everyone progresses together.  Specific fight gear is required and will need to be pre-ordered if you don’t already have it.  Pre-Enrollment is required and space is limited so pre-register now!
