Thank you to everyone who came out and supported Guro Diana Rathborne’s visit to MKG Madison! 
Friday night was Guro Diana’s Filipino Martial Arts and Jeet Kune Do Workshop. We had folks travel from as far as Milwaukee and Chicago to take part in the fun!  It was awesome to see everyone training hard, learning and laughing!  Thank you to everyone who came out.
Then …
Saturday was our Women’s Self Defense Seminar. I think it may have been our biggest yet! 
Thank you all of the ladies that took a whole day out of their busy schedules to invest in themselves and their safety. There were women here of all walks of life. There were mothers, daughters, grandmothers, sisters, aunts and friends. It was fantastic to see everyone learning and taking the seminar so seriously, but yet having fun! 
Personal Protection is not always the easiest thing to talk about. I was so proud of everyone stepping out of their comfort zones to learn some tools that could help them avoid dangerous situations and what to do if they can’t! 
You ladies are AWESOME!

Thank you to all of the volunteers who step up and took a beating for the greater good!

I have already been getting questions of when Guro Diana and Nakita will be back to Madison. You will know as soon as I do! 🙂
