Learn to Defend Attackers Armed with a Knife

WhiteKnifeOn November 11th at 7:30 pm Mid-South Black Belt  Instructor, Patrick Terry will conduct our next in our 2013 workshop series focusing on knife threat and attack defenses from various angles and distances.  We will also will train 3rd party defenses where one has to step in and defend someone else under attack.  This is great training and is open to everyone including NON members and no previous experience is necessary.

Crime in Memphis and why YOU Need Our Training

memphis crime

This news coverage focused on both the fact that violent crime in Tennessee is very common and that there are many things that can be done to prevent becoming a victim.  However this expert also noted that an alarm system at home and guns don’t necessarily make you as safe as one may think.  We at MSKM teaches adults self protection skills to survive a violent confrontation using personal weapons such as our hands and feet (and common objects in your environment). Come try our classes today and don’t forget – we are offering special fall discounts for new members!! call today 327-0297 for your free trial lesson!! Click Here for the News Feature

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.
