MKG is not a gym, it is a martial arts school. You can get a work out and hit or kick a heavy bag anywhere. But if you really want to LEARN martial arts and immerse yourself in multiple art forms, then you owe it to yourself to give MKG a try. I took my first Phase/Mixed Arts class at MKG about 8 years ago and have been enrolled at the school since. I consider the students and instructors at MKG some of my dearest friends, more like a part of my extended family. The sense of community is second to none. In addition to the adult and youth martial arts programs, the school also offers the MAX10 Fitness & Boot Camp and a state-of-the-art CrossFit program. There is also very reasonably priced child care available on-site.

I have been training at MKG for 5 years now, and continue to be impressed with the quality of martial arts instruction. The instructors are awesome, your training partners are enthusiastic, and the training facilities are top notch. Plus, it's one of the few schools in the country that teaches savate. Seriously, if you want to train in martial arts, come check out MKG.

MKG is an amazing place to train, I never felt better than when I was training there. The people are incredible, and I only felt self concious for the first few days of class, after that I felt like I belonged. Everyone is easy to talk to, and the trainers are all great people. I recommend it for anyone either trying to get into shape, or learn martial arts. It's a great place to train.
