Our History:

Owner Josh Metcalf opened MKMJJ in Memphis on July 3rd, 2021. At this point, he had taught and trained Krav Maga for 15 years and was confident in his passion for teaching. When the COVID-19 pandemic challenged small businesses, Josh took the opportunity to open a Krav Maga academy in Memphis. He wanted to create a place that provided top-quality self-defense training.
