Kempo Core Classes
With the new year, just a reminder that we still have our additional class offerings for anyone looking to add to their fitness routine. Kempo Core, an intense, 30-minute class designed to strengthen the foundational muscles of the abs, back, and glutes, is every Wednesday at 6pm. Classes are $6. Classes are taught by Instructor Kathi. Please feel free to contact her with any questions at 540-250-5988, or

Help Us Grow
We are always looking for ways to get out in front of new groups of people. If you like the program and could help, it would be most appreciated. Some of the things we are trying are demo classes for the John Newman Academy and a self-defense class with Montgomery County Parks and Rec. We would love to get in front of young people any chance we can get. Our target group is children 6 - 10 years old, we can also do classes for older students and adults groups. If you have a connection at any of the local organizations, like private and church schools, boy and girls scouts, or any other group we would love for you to make the introduction. Be sure to mention that we do most of these intro classes for free.

If you have any questions or suggestions, please see Mr. Petersen. Thanks!
