Dan Highley – Xtreme Krav Maga
Daniel Highley is a resident of Fenton, Missouri. Most college students would look forward to the summer time for parties and relaxing after a long year of school. I must have missed that memo because all I could think about during those long hours of studying is how much I missed training at Xtreme Krav Maga.
My first encounter with krav maga was on a casual drive with the family about four years ago, we passed by the gym and the name caught my eye. I have always been interested in martial arts having wrestled for two years in high school and taking tae kwon do for two years but had never found a system that seemed to work for me so I decided to give it a try. After my first class I left with a feeling of exhaustion that I had never experienced in my life, but also a little nagging in the back of my head that said, “I want more!!!!”.
It has now been a few years later and I still get the same feeling after I leave the gym everyday. Not only does the system of Krav Maga get you into amazing shape but as someone that is a State Trooper I am learning skills that could possibly save my life one day.
Many people are intimidated by the idea of going to a gym were you are required to get hit or hit back fearing that they will be beaten to a pulp on their first day for being a rookie. That is not the way this gym operates, there are no egos and everyone is extremely polite and helpful. We all band together as a team to push each other beyond our limits and make each person better. You will not find this bond at any other gym and I can guarantee that. So if you are looking for something beyond pumping iron and jogging definetly come down to the gym and take a class. You will not be disappointed!
