Spring Krav Camp 2021 OPORD


SUBJECT: Operations Order, Spring Krav Camp 2021



a. Enemy Forces. There is much spiritual and social unrest, crime and danger in the United States of America today. COVID has affected many in various ways too. A small group of motivated success warriors have converged upon an icon of hope known as KMMA to stage a rebellion against the enemy forces of crime, complacency, disease, weakness, boredom and fear.

b. Friendly Forces.

2.  MISSION:  We will deploy to the AO, via 13247 Word Of Life Dr, Hudson, FL 34669, on Saturday March 20 to conduct training operations in Krav Maga Martial Arts to include KMMA Combatives & Self Protection, Kickboxing and Kali!


      a.  Intent: It is my intent that all participants have a great training experience, learn a lot of great martial art, make new friends and form great memories and that we do it all in a fun and safe environment with no accident or injury. All students will experience the whole of KMMA’s curriculum and Blackbelts and Blackbelt candidates preparing for testing will especially be prepared to win! We have been doing Krav Camps for over 14 years now and every Krav Maga Camp has been better than the one before. It is my intent to make this one the best camp yet! We will have four training groups this year: beginner, intermediate, advanced and instructor, plus a special group for youth.
