Sorry it’s been so long…

Hi All!

GM Del Castillo here and I apologize that it has been so long since I have written. I was away doing some training- learning even more to keep improving the quality of service excellence at Krav Maga Martial Arts!

We have a great program already but, as we teach, good enough is the enemy of excellent and we practice what we preach by applying CANI (Constant and Never Ending Improvement) and L3 (Life Long Learning) to all that we do!

Thank you for letting us share this mission with you!

  Start your 2 week free trial and orientation program here if you’re not with us yet! 


Shihan Harley and I also got to teach a Krav Maga self protection seminar to all the Blackbelts of Mile High Karate in CO while there



Speaking of CANI and Lifelong Learning, the summer is upon us!

What is your family doing to make sure you are moving forward and getting better over the break!


Our Leadership and Martial Arts Summer Camps are a great way for students to accelerate their journey and for beginners to get a fast start!
