  • Level 1 Test Prep and Vaccines!

    Good morning everyone! First, I’m happy to report that I’ve joined many of the KMR community in becoming fully vaccinated. Every day I’m hearing staff and members talk about getting their first or second dose, and we steadily moving towards the day when when the pandemic will be behind us, and we can take off those darn masks. But it is not this day! Stay patient, stay cautious, and we’ll get there soon. After the level 1 review on Saturday, we are close to the next test.

Those of you who have been with KMR for a year or more will remember Kraventines, a partner-attendance competition we run every year in February. Basically you and your "Krav spouse" (any training partner from the studio) will team up and come to classes together. Historically the competition has been that the Krav couple that takes the most classes in February before Valentine's Day wins a a gift card to a very nice Raleigh restaurant.
