Hello SBKM family and friends,
We hope March finds you and your families healthy and happy. This is a big month for us here at the studio as well as an important month historically. On March 15th, 2014Santa Barbara Krav Maga will be CLOSED for two day the 15th and 16th, our Instructor Candidates will be undergoing a two day testing in Huntington Beach for their Instructor Certification. We wish them all good luck and know they will represent us well, working hard and making our studio proud. SBKM will also be running our Adult testing the following weekend March, 22nd. All regular Classes will be off for the day.
March is also Women’s History Month. The first International Women’s Day was in 1911. In 1980, President Jimmy Carter declared March 8th as National Women’s History Week. In this declaration he stated, “from the first settlers who came to our shores, from the first American Indian families who befriended them, men and women have worked together to build this nation. Too often the women were unsung and sometimes their contributions went unnoticed. But the achievements, leadership, courage, strength and love of the women who built America was as vital as that of the men whose names we know so well.” Here at Santa Barbara Krav Maga, we are extremely excited to see a growing number of women coming in to see what Krav Maga is all about and joining our studio. We celebrate all of you ladies and hope our program is an environment of empowerment, allowing you to continue to build confidence in your abilities to protect yourselves and loved ones.
