    Upcoming Changes to KMNY

    We’re making substantial changes that will impact Zen Planner (our student portal), credit card processing and memberships. These changes are in improvement, but admittedly, also a bit of a hassle. You will be effected. You should know what they are. I know your time is valuable so I’ll try to keep it short but there’s a lot, so if now is not a good time, please read this notice carefully later. First, if I haven’t called you yet to personally thank you for sticking with us, I will. Your support has been awesome, but I won’t kid you, it’s not like everything is fine now that KMNY is open. COVID has had a devastating impact and in all honesty, the ....

    Exercise and The COVID Pandemic

    Exercise and The COVID Pandemic
    The human immune system is a highly intricate network of cells and molecules designed to keep the host free from infection and disease. Exercise is known to have a profound impact on the function of the immune system. Moreover, there is ample, clear evidence that exercise reduces depressive symptoms in everyone, including number and severity of episodes, as well as acute and chronic symptoms of anxiety. The Virus in Your Lungs
    When the immune system detects the virus invader in your lungs, it attacks. The conflict between the virus and immune cells creates inflammation. That inflammation causes damage to lung tissue that interferes with breathing ....

    Hundreds of Gym Owners Sue New York State

    Hundreds of Gyms Are Suing NY State
    As customers return to salons, restaurants and bars, frustrated gym and fitness center owners are asking for equal treatment. On July 9th, a coalition of gym owners representing 2,000 facilities across New York filed a class-action lawsuit. The plaintiffs allege that Cuomo’s executive shutdown order, while necessary early on, has now violated their due process, and that the decision not to allow gyms to open while spas, retail and other businesses operate is discriminatory. The class action suit, filed in the state Supreme Court by Syosset based Mermigis Law Group, is suing the state for $500 million in lost revenue and the resulting ....

    Why Gyms Remain Closed

    NY State Has a Re-Opening Plan for Everyone, Except Gyms
    On March 7th NY Sate issued executive order 202, declaring a statewide emergency. Gyms were closed down under order modification 202.3 – among the first businesses to be impacted by closures.

Gyms Have Been Shut Down Since March, No Guidance Available
    Even though New York State has issued guidance for a lot of indoor venues like malls, stores, and restaurants, gyms have been deemed unnecessary. The reason for the continued closure? There ....

    Keyless Entry Option
    Overview As we continue to monitor NY State’s regional phased re-opening plan, while we’re still several weeks away from being granted the opportunity to open our doors, we would like to begin to offer our members the option to train in a responsible way, one that will balance our need to maintain critical business function, your need to stay active, and the needs of our community. If we find that our needs, our member’s needs and the needs of our community cannot be balanced efficiently or effectively, we will immediately cease the effort we’re about to embark on and re-evaluate. For now, we intend to temporarily grant members the ....

  • Our Re-Opening Plan

    Our Re-Opening Plan

    We test Krav Maga students on a scale from 1 to 10. I’ve never given a 10 at any point in time, on any of the tests I’ve run. And it’s really hard for me to give a 9. I can pretty much recall every 9 I’ve ever given. That’s how rare it is. I’m telling you this to put what I’m going to say next into perspective. I can now say with 90% certainty that we will reopen. I refuse to say it with 100% certainty for the same reason I never give a 10. It’s just not me. Our re-opening plan is broken up into stages, detailed and changing to meet guidelines and safety standards. I’ll try to break it down here as simply as I can. Stage I starts ....
