  • Street Clothes Today, Pilates This Weekend!

    Good morning everyone! Two quick announcements/reminders about classes and workshops:
    Level 2 and 3 Street Clothes Today!
    Today the level 2 and level 3 classes in the evening will be done in street clothes. Please dress in something "realistic," but also safe. The clothes will get roughed up a bit, so this class is not a good time to wear your Sunday best. Think about what you wear most of the time, or in situations where you're most likely to need to defend yourself, and work with that. For shoes, nothing that would damage your ankles or the mats please, such as high heels or soccer cleats. Pilates!

    Our free pilates class this month is Saturday at 12:30pm. This ....

  • Snow, Street Clothes, and Sparring!

    Good afternoon everyone! We're coming to you with a mid-week update because there might be snow tomorrow. This winter has been pretty anemic so far, but the forecast seems confident, so we'll be prepared. With any potential snow days, we generally try to stay open for at least a class or two, allowing the chance to train for anyone who can make it. The forecast currently says that we won't get snow until the afternoon at the earliest, likely the evening, so stay tuned for updates. Level 2 and 3 Street Clothes Training Feb 24
    On Monday Feb 24, the level 2 and level 3 classes will be done in street clothes. Please dress in something "realistic," but also safe. The clothes will get ....

  • Congratulations to the Kraventine's Winners!

    Good morning everyone! First and foremost, congratulations to our Kraventine’s Grand Prize winners, Irene and Sean Krohn! They took 27 classes between February 1 and February 13th, more than two a day. And in a very close second we have Amy and Jeff McCoy, who were right on their heels with 25 classes! Both of these Krav couples took Kraventine’s to the next level, and we all enjoyed getting wrapped up in the drama of this friendly competition. Besides them, we had plenty of other training couples taking lots of classes together, so thank you to everyone who joined in on the spirit of Kraventine’s and made the first part of February so exciting. There are plenty of ....
