When Krav Maga Worldwide Lead Instructor A.J. Draven showed students and staff this photo of his infant son, Xavier, we all had the same reaction: “Wow, it looks like he’s in a fighting stance!”
AJ’s photo got me thinking about the amazing families that we have training with us at KMW. The more I look around the centers, the more I notice the dozens of families that train together. Brothers, sisters, moms, and dads are all sharing a similar experience that strengthens them individually and collectively. By working hard and encouraging one another they are making themselves -and each other-safer and stronger.
While AJ has assured us at KMW that he hasn’t put the gloves on this young man quite yet, I look forward to five years from now when Xavier jumps into his first km-X class and AJ has the opportunity to share a similar experience with his son.
