Student Highlight: Mark J.

Hi, Titan family!

My name is Mark – still waiting for a Titan nickname – and I live in Lincoln Square/North Ravenswood. Last year, I went through a divorce and decided that physical fitness was going to be a major part of moving forward. I began with making attendance at my local gym part of my lifestyle and focusing on nutrition. After a few months, I felt positive changes in my health – physically and mentally. I wanted to pair my new fit and active lifestyle with learning something new, so I explored martial arts. First, I tried a free Muay Thai class at a different gym. Although the experience wasn’t bad, I didn’t jump when they asked me to sign up the same day. The next free trial I took was Krav Maga at Titan Gym! The trial class was so much more than a “trial.” Ivo did an amazing job connecting the techniques to real world scenarios and I understood that Krav was more than just sport. Needless to say, I left that trial with a t-shirt soaked in sweat and a curiosity of what more I could learn. I signed up the same day!

Here we are, seven months later, and I am a Level 2 student. Along the way, I have gotten to know some extremely friendly and supportive teachers and bonded with hard core classmates. I enjoy the uniqueness in all who attend Titan and appreciate the lack of pretentiousness. No one here has been egotistical or overly competitive. We have all encouraged each other to improve our skills and conditioning. I have seen remarkable results in myself and my classmates.

Since becoming a member here, I have gone through many more personal challenges and successes. Joining Titan and becoming part of the family has added to my growth and development – even at the ripe old age of thirty-eight. Learning to defend myself with Krav Maga has given me increased confidence in my personal safety. I look forward to continuing my training and putting myself through all the grueling level tests (insert sarcasm). If we haven’t met yet, please stop me and introduce yourself, I would love to meet you. Go Titans!
