This week at MKG Madison . . . August 7th

Happy Monday



New Schedule for the Fall at MKG Madison??!!
As many of you have seen (and responded to) a few surveys that we have sent our recently looking at how to improve our schedule. We are always looking at ways to improve the gym, and providing the right classes at times that you can attend them is high on our list.
(If not, it isn’t to late! here are the links to the Adult Schedule Survey and MKG Kids Family Schedule Survey)
The biggest take away that we have found from the surveys is that you like to get in, get you training in and get home at a bit earlier time. We have also found out classes our Adults would like to make, with our Phase Progam, Panantukan and Kickboxing Essentials at the top of the list. Jun Fan / JKD and Weaponry not to far behind.
Our second survey was for our MKG Kids Families and we found out (Surprisingly) that a large majority of our families would attend a 4:15 class if there was one.
So with that information I would like to propose a schedule change. This is just a PROPOSAL! Nothing has been set in stone (except that our daytime classes will become a morning class starting Tuesday, August 15th)
If this new schedule were to take effect it would be Monday, September 4th. We will have more information as we get closer to making the schedule official.
If you have any questions or objections please make sure to contact us directly at
This Week at MKG Madison . . . .
This is a special week for the entire MKG Organization because it is CAMP WEEK. Every year the second weekend of August is a wonderful opportunity for adult martial artist from all over the work to meet at the Minneapolis Headquarters to get 3 days of intensive training, fun and family.
With that said, Mr. Josh will be head to Mpls to take part. So, that means there will be a little bit of schedule changes. They are as follows:
  • Thursday Morning (11am) Phase Class is cancelled this week.
  • Saturday Morning (11am) Phase Class will be an Open Gym opportunity lead by Joe Kramer.
All of the the other adult and childrens classes will be going on as scheduled. (Thanks to the help of a few awesome folks)
