Have Framily to be thankful for?

Future KMMA Student,

It’s hard to believe it, but we are approaching that magical time of the year- the Holiday Season!

We have Thanksgiving this week and then Hanukkah, Christmas and New Year’s Eve next month!

First and foremost I want to wish everyone a beautiful season with people you love. It’s been a crazy year but, life is still 10% what happens and 90% how we react to it; don’t let anything that’s happened affect your happiness.

Tis the season to be jolly. Choose to make it so!

Amongst the many things that I have to be grateful for this season are great friends and family but also a great Framily at KMMA.

If you are already part of this, thank you and we look forward to continuing to serve you and yours for years to come! Thank you for the privilege of empowering your family members’ lives through Krav Maga Martial Arts!

If you haven’t experienced our amazing family atmosphere and classes yet, we hope you will before the end of this year!
