As we celebrate the holidays and the passing of another year, I’m left with an overwhelming sense of gratitude.

I find myself among family and friends, a powerful and uplifting Krav Maga community, and with much for which to be thankful. I pray and hope each of you find time in your life to reflect, learn, and feel the impact of deep gratitude. What has happened for you this year for which you can now give thanks after reflecting on the situation or season you’ve been through?

Finally, thank you for being a loyal part of the Kravology community, for your encouragement, and your well wishes. We are taking a few weeks off in December to be with family and to rework some of the format of Kravology – exciting things may be just around the corner! I look forward to 2019 with more from Kravology for you – perhaps much more!

So, I’m wishing you all Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, and many blessings to each of you.

    CJ, this is Bill Cobb. Not sure if you remember me. I wanted to let you know that I’ve moved up to Alaska – an opportunity I could not say no to. After 18 years in Houston and wishing for something more, I found it. I only made 4 years with Krav Maga, but the experience has stayed me ever since. It is said that the imagination, once stretched, never returns to its original proportions, and here I must say that KM has given me a physical and mental preparation for the many challenges that Alaska offers. We live on the edge of wilderness, and my situational awareness and never letting my guard down shows that something came from those 4 long years. On top of my many new “chores” I still maintain a rigid training regiment, including Bas Rutten’s All Round fighting CD. Thanks for all you did for me and give my regards to Chris, Joe, Matt and Trae.
