A great start to 2012 - growth in Jungki Kwan Midwest

I am proud to say that Jungki Kwan Midwest has grown dynamically in the first month of 2012.  We are adding new authorized training facilities in New Orleans, LA; Davenport, IA; Philadelphia, PA; and internationally in London, England; Riga, Latvia; Sydney, Australia; and 24 branches in Brazil.
It is so exciting for me to see the growth of Jungki Kwan Midwest, and the Jungki Kwan in general.  I will do my very best to aid in the growth of these locations and continue to push forward to have 40 member dojang by year end!

Safety is not always a click away...

It occurred to me that in a day and age when we do things faster, more electronically, and often with less and less interaction with other actual people, we have come to believe that our bodies can be protected with the click of a mouse like our cars and homes.  This could not be further from the truth.
The reality is that we need to learn how to defend ourselves with another person to use for training...it is something that cannot be easily learned from a DVD or live stream on the internet.  And as much as people look around at the world, with all the problems in modern society, I am always amazed that people put a higher value on insuring objects rather than themselves.  More amazing is that people will spend huge amounts of money on life insurance - and nothing to insure their safety in the here and now.
Don't you think that your family and friends would rather have you than a check?
Moreover, even when people do want to learn self defense, they just want the option that close to home, it doesn't matter if it works - they will spend more time looking at online menus for restaurants than caring if the self defense they are interested in actually works...that might mean spending time looking up the program, making a few calls...but honestly, its worth it - learning to defend yourself MATTERS - to you, your family anf friends, and finding a great program is worth the time - self defense is the kind of insurance NO ONE wants to use, but that we should all have!  OK, breath in, breath out...rant over.

I teach this program...BACKOFF! Self Defense  - this is our Facebook Page.  There are several other good programs out there, if you live in Chicago or New Orleans this is one you should check out.  Here is the instructor in New Orleans...Fitness Trainer Dalia Klimkowski
