Clarifying MKG Madison’s Direction and Purpose
The upcoming schedule change is a reflection of the clarified direction and purpose of our adult martial art program here at MKG Madison. We have a great thing going and this doesn’t change that great thing. What we are trying to do is help you understand the core of our school.
MKG Madison is, at it’s very core a JKD (Jeet Kune Do) Concepts school. Which means that the Guro Rick Faye founded the MKG International Organization under the concepts, principles and philosophy left behind by the late Sijo Bruce Lee, which is being carried on to this day by Guro Dan Inosanto. The most important principle of JKD is to “Honestly Express Oneself.” through the martial arts. To honestly express ourselves we must continually be a process of personal discovery. Through that self discovery we can continue to grow in our own personal direction and strive to fulfill our calling whatever it may look like.
So our job as your instructors is not to make move versions of us, but to provide a solid foundation and to be a guide that helps you find your own way along this martial arts journey.
With this new schedule and clearified purpose we will do our best to provide you with a solid beginning with our Foundations and Fitness Class. Then introduce you to different martial art perspectives that will help you start your journey as a well rounded martial artist in MKG’s signature Phase Program. We also encourage you to explore your own interests through our weekly Focus Classes that will help to expand and deepen you understanding of a specific martial arts persepective.
We sincerly hope that this core understanding of your school, MKG Madison, will allow you to reach your goal and highest potential as you explore the world of martial arts.
