Santa Barbara Krav Maga News November 2018!

November is here!!! Holidays are approaching fast!!!

Welcome to November! The weather has changed and there will be a lot of activity in public places with shopping and events all over town this month. Our featured event will be our Active Shooter Defense Seminar, taking place on Wednesday November 28th 6pm-8pm. $45 for all pre registered attendees, $50 the day of the event. NO experience necessary ages 16 & up. No regular classes will take place that evening. This is a reality based course with segmented debriefings after each section of the training learning everything from knowing when to run, hide, arm, barricade and finally fighting back and neutralizing the threat at whatever capacity is necessary. We will be working disarms of weapons and takedown in teams along with improvised tourniquets and moving the wounded. Tell your loved ones, co-workers, and friends for this vital training. Please follow the link for KCRW’s story on our Active Shooter Seminars earlier this year for more information.

Our Women’s Self-Defense Close Quarters Seminar for Breast Cancer Awareness Month was a hit with a great mix of new students and veteran students at the helm setting the example. Thank you to those who spread the word and especially to our volunteer attackers Sasha, Kevin and Lead Instructor Brandon!

This month we will be running our Women’s Self Defense Seminar on Friday Night Nov, 16th 6:30p-8p (NO Experience needed ages 12 and up)

The studio will be closed Wednesday November 21-Saturday November 24th for the Thanksgiving Holiday. We will be back open Monday November 26th for a special Turkout Workout open to ANYONE and EVERYONE from 6pm-7:30pm. Be ready to work off all the turkey and leftovers!Regular classes will resume to regular schedule on Tuesday November 27th. Then Wednesday is the Active Shooter Defense Seminar. Regular classes will be canceled for this event

The next round of adult belt testing is a little over a month away on Saturday December 8th starting at 8am- finish, so be sure to get into the studio and train. All instructors are available for private lessons as the holiday season can be quite busy for many of us. If you are a SBKM member and are not part of the cardio program, you can drop-in for cardio at $15 per class. Classes are offered Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays at 6pm, and Saturday mornings 9am.

Lastly, I want to wish good luck and G-ds speed to or Brown Belt Candidates: Elizabeth Turner, Leana Gutierrez, Amber Paresa, Giovanni Vigna and Stanley Fletcher on Nov,17th at our Headquarters BCKM. Thank you to all of you for supporting SBKM, spreading the word about the work that we do, writing reviews on social media and giving feedback. Especially giving your all every time you step onto the mat.
