Before and After

There are so many things that I want to write and share about the last week of the year, as we approach our best year ever.

   It’s 0 week at the dojo; that is, we are doing all the necessary prep work to be ready to hit the ground rocking classes and empowering lives next Tuesday!

So Sensei Allie is here with me today and was showing me some new pics she has put together of the team for our tour wall, and I had to share them with you here today.

Here is Sensei Allie, when she started and current.

She’s come a long way since she was four. 🙂

   But as a young 23 year old Blackbelt Leader, she’s only just begun!

Sensei Allie continues to grow as one of our youth head instructors, and a key leader of Team KMMA.

I’m proud of and grateful for her and look forward to continuing to help her grow personally and professionally, while she helps us grow all our future Blackbelts into confident and competent Blackbelt Leaders too!

Sensei Winston has been here his whole life too, and also continues to grow, as a martial artists, leader and Head Instructor of Team KMMA.

And then there’s Sensei John Warwick, pictured here with his son Maddon.

   John clearly started as an adult student- like so many, to do something special with his son.

But he has grown so much in these few years to Blackbelt too!

Well, in every way except weight- he’s also lost over 50 pounds since he started training!

I am so proud of and grateful for he and his son, and can’t wait to help him accomplish all of his personal and professional goals in ’24 too!

He’s also a KMMA Sensei now, and also our Program Director.

I share this because I am proud and grateful of all these leaders as part of Team KMMA.

   But I’ll tell you, I am equally proud of all our Blackbelt Leaders of KMMA. 

And, as excited as I am to grow these featured Sensei this year, I am excited to do the same for you too!

   Sensei John would love to help you begin your journey.

Just email him and he’ll email back, or call you, to schedule your 2 week free trial and orientation program in 2024.

Make 2024 the year.

    We will help you accomplish your goals to be your best, and maybe even be one of our before and after pics one day too!
