After a busy several months of preparing our home for sale, searching for a new home, selling our old home, and finally moving this past weekend. I took a few minutes to look back. I kept thinking you guys, our MKG Family. I just want to say, Thank you!
Thank you for all of your support of our family over the years and especially 2020. It has been a rough few months. Knowing that we have our MKG Madison and MKG International Family has made it so much better then it could have been. I hope you can say the same.
Ruth, Alana, and I have done our best to provide consistent, safe, and accessible martial art training for you during the pandemic. We are humbled that you continue to support MKG Madison through it all. I personally have appreciated your understanding and support when a break was needed to refocus and recharge. Most recently a few days off for the move. This was a pretty big thing both physically, (moving from a 3 bedroom home to a 2 bedroom apartment) and emotionally (moving from our home of 23 years, the one raised our 4 kids in). We have received so many messages and words of encouragement through this transition. They have meant so much. We thankful and humbled by them.
So, for the future, this means that once things are settled we will be able to put much more attention back on building MKG Madison to all it can be. Although our current circumstances still seem a little restrictive, we will move forward. We are looking forward to finding more creative ways to use martial arts to develop more functional and peaceful people, for a more functional and peaceful world.
Thank you so much for all of your support!
We love you!
