    In 2010, Joel and I were given the privilege to work in the martial arts business. We loved being able to empower so many families and spread the wealth of benefits our training gave to us. Over time, the dream of owning our own martial arts school was born.

    In the years 2014-2016, we endured the most difficult time in our lives. The deaths of four close family members and a personal battle with ovarian cancer flooded that time with loss, sadness, and stress. Our martial arts family, training, and values were the blanket that sheltered us and helped us fight through. They gave us…fortitude.

    In 2018, after being married nearly a year and welcoming our first child, we received the opportunity to acquire our own Krav Maga school in our beloved hometown of Neenah. Since Krav Maga encompasses all of Joel’s favorite aspects of his 20 years of martial arts training, we couldn’t think of a better way to launch our dream into reality. We chose to name the school Fortitude, which means strength and courage in the face of adversity. It is a constant reminder of how the martial arts helped us, and it precisely describes what Krav Maga is all about.

    Here at Fortitude Krav Maga, our mission is to give our students the fortitude to fight through and protect themselves in any challenge they may face in life– no matter the circumstance.
