Earn your belt this summer


Like so many things in our Blackbelt Leadership Development Course at Krav Maga Martial Arts, belts are a symbol.

Belt promotion is a symbol of accomplishment.

The process to earn one’s belt is a symbol of the goal setting skills that it takes to accomplish anything in life!


Our Blackbelt Success System teaches students to set a goal, make a plan and take actions daily to accomplish that goal.

The system includes other key ingredients to goal accomplsihment, including the mentorship of a success coach, progress checks and regular feedback along the way, and built in systems that help students develop the neccessary habits of success.

And, for existing students and first time beginners, our KMMA Blackbelt Training & Leadership Martial Arts camp is a great way to accelerate over the summer or get a fast start!

A normal belt testing cycyle is 3 months, wherein the student attends 2 classes a week for 24 classes over the quarter that prepare he or she for testing.

Rank camp is a 2 week camp of 3 hours a day that creates the same 24 hours of training in just 2 weeks, with the KMMA Sensei mentoring the campers in exactly what they need to learn and do to be ready to test Friday of the second week!


As is also possible in goal setting in life, we will teach the students how focus and intensity can collapose time towards the accomplishment of our worthy goals. This is of course not possible in all circumstances, but can be in many.
