** APRIL   2024!**

SBKM Family….

Happy Spring, everyone!!! We hope everyone who celebrates had a wonderful Easter, and we hope all students are enjoying a refreshing Spring Break! The sun is starting to come back out, the days are getting a little longer, and it’s time to train!

On a more serious note, April is Sexual Assault Awareness month. While people of any gender can be the victims of sexual assault – and we train everyone here! – we understand the women are disproportionately the targets of sexual violence. And we’re here to equip those who need it with the ability to defend themselves.

For this reason, we wanted to hold an empowering and effective Women’s Self-Defense Seminar this April. CLICK HERE

Originally, we had Women’s Self Defense Scheduled for Saturday, April 20th, 11AM-12:30pm.

If you, or someone you know, wants to learn highly effective self-defense in a safe environment, this is the perfect opportunity. No experience is necessary, just get your tickets here:

Remember we are a referral and review based business.Spread the word! Share the excitement with friends and family. Take advantage of our special two-week trial for just $39.99, which includes a free T-shirt and a guest pass. It’s the perfect way to kickstart your journey into self-defense and fitness.

**Special Offer: 6 Months + 1 Free, Unlimited Training, Free T-shirt, and Guest Pass!**

For a limited time, sign up for a six-month term and receive the seventh month absolutely free! But that’s not all – we’re also offering two weeks of unlimited training, a complimentary T-shirt, and a guest pass for you to share the fitness experience with a friend.

Best regards,

SBKM Staff & Management

What is Krav Maga?

“So that one may walk in peace.” Imi Lichtenfeld, founder of Krav Maga

The roots of the self-defense system date back to 1930’s Bratislava in what was then Czechoslovakia at the beginning of WWII during Nazi occupation of Europe. Imi Lichtenfeld, the son of a detective and chief instructor of police in what was then Czechoslovakia, was an active practitioner of boxing, Judo, wrestling, swimming, gymnastics, and all-around athlete. As violence towards Jewish civilians and other minorities increased with the rise of Nazism in Europe, Imi’s drive to create a survival system to defend civilians in the streets was honed and thus the roots of Krav Maga were planted.
