My 7 Step Plan for KMMA to Serve Our Students and Community In April

Hello loyal KMMA Student family,

First and foremost, thank you for being with us as we each work together to minimize the negative impacts of the Coronavirus enemy, and continue to emower your family’s lives and our surrounding communities through martial art. By continuing on and turning adversity into victory, we not ony serve one another so that we come through this better, but you are setting the example of leadership in crisis for your kids and any others that look up to you.  I am proud and grateful to have you.


Grand Master Stephen Del Castillo

             Beau and Brooks had fun!

KMMA 7 Step Strategic Plan To Survive, Thrive and Keep The Mission and Your Passion Alive!

  1. We are taking all classes LIVE and online starting next week! ONE Dojo, ONE Mission, and One Place! It’s the same place we are doing private lessons today and tomorrow and LIVE TESTING Wednesday and Thursday! Read Ms. Ruthe’s letter below in case you missed, forgot or still need to register!
  2. We are still building out our new online courses at and you will all get access to this for FREE as long as you remain active students of our KMMA dojo.
  3. I will be providing a daily Leadership lesson in the Virtual Dojo weekdays at 10. As you know, our leadership lessons are a big part of our program. I hope you will join us and bring your family!
  4. Even though we are providing above and beyond service in this modified environment for as long as we need to, we are also adding the entirity of time that we operate under this modified environment to the end of your current agreement- so you will lose no time.
  5. In order that we can help our neighbors during this difficult time, we are also making the foundations level of the program available for free to anyone for as long as social distancing and other CDC guidelines exists.
  6. We will also provide REAL LIVE virtual intros for new/future students! In the same way as I have directed and implemented the live virtual classes for all of you because the video lessons, while awesoem, can’t match the live interaction with a KMMA Sensei, the same applies at elast as much to beginners. So if you have a friend or family member that you’d like to introduce to KMMA, let me know and we’ll set up a virtual intro with them! You can even come help!
  7. We will also be providing free community workshops for kids and adults. I think the first one I am going to teach will be for adults and called Leadership under crisis; but we will also be doing many of the great kids presentations that we normally do at the schools. Why not go into the living room schools through the month, or rest of the year or however long it takes!


See you at the KMMA Virtual Dojo tomorrow at 10!
