BJJ, Muay Thai, MMA, Krav Maga, Chuck Norris…there. Now that I’ve gotten those pesky search engine tag words out of the way…
…Boy, 3 months sure blew right by! Because we were still waiting on some paperwork in the mail when we held our first class, we didn’t have the Grand Opening extravaganza we wanted (Mike Mathias was particularly bummed when he showed up with a karaoke machine and a clown). We expected to celebrate our opening soon after that class, but our schedules have been so crazy that we lost track, procrastinated, etc. So this weekend, we’re having a REAL Grand Opening with food, friends and…well, mostly food and friends. Most businesses have a soft opening and then a grand opening within 30 days, so we’re a little behind, but I think the doughnut burgers will taste that much sweeter. Yes, Ken Richstad set the trend when he created the doughnut burger tradition. You cut a doughnut like a bagel and slap a beef patty, cheese and maybe even an egg on there…VOILA! Krav tradition!
We’re also about to begin another tradition in August, the Level One Test! Oh yes, it’s about that time, when students who think they’re ready find out just how ready they are by training harder than they ever have for 2-3 hours while we grade them. In past tests, participants have been known to throw up, cry and pass out, but I expect nothing less than perfect technique and frosty stoicism from our ferocious TKM students 😉 The test will be held on August 20th at 12:30PM at the KMR studio. A Level One Review will be held on the 6th (same time, same location) for those who either think they’re ready to test or those who’d simply enjoy the curricular overview. After the Review, we’ll tell students whether they’re ready or whether they need to improve on certain techniques.
If anyone passes the deadly Level One Test (which I highly doubt), they will move on to Level Two training. This means they will have officially attained the right to look down upon their Level One peers and make jokes about their round kicks. It also means we will add Level Two classes to our schedule!
So get ready, ninjas! TKM’s about to make some history!
