September Newsletter

Oh, hello there. I hope you haven't forgotten about us, because we certainly haven't forgotten you! Our newsletter went silent for a few months but we've been quite busy in the meanwhile.

First and foremost, we have a lot of congratulations to share! We are very proud of our hardworking team, members, and friends. Here are some of the highlights:

We just wrapped our 2016 Krav Maga Instructor Certification program last week. Please join us in welcoming the new Tactica Krav Maga Institute certified instructors! Congratulations! You worked very hard over the 18 day KMIC program, and your efforts paid off. Keep up your training and keep on advancing your skills!
We wish our very best to Cal, William, and Stan on taking the next big step in their careers as they move out of the San Francisco Bay Area and explore new opportunities. You're going to do great in your new endeavors! We will miss you!

Congratulations to Josh Carvalho (CO) on achieving his Expert-Civilian rank during the August Graduate Training Intensive at our Santa Clara HQ. This is a huge accomplishment and we are very proud of you! Josh demonstrated true fighting spirit, and we were impressed by your mental and physical fortitude despite the strenuous 4 days of training and testing.

Congratulations to our Tactica BJJ team! Several of our members have won medals in area competitions. Oss! Best of luck to everyone competing in the upcoming NAGA tournament!

Congratulations to all of our members and friends that tested from all over the US and across all levels from Practitioner to Expert so far this year! Testing is a great way to check in on your progress, and help advance your training. We are very proud of all your hard work! Keep it up.

In Remembrance: Joel Griffin

The Tactica family is devastated by the loss of Joel Griffin, founder of Griffin Fitness. Joel has been a long time friend of Tactica all the way back to its Berkeley Krav Maga days on Ashby. A close friend and personal trainer for Danny, he believed in Tactica with all his heart, and even collaborated with Danny to create SPEC (Specialized Program for Exercise and Combat), which you now see daily and across the country.

Joel went the extra mile for our members and staff, and his generosity and care was instrumental on a personal level for many of us. He was an animal lover and an exceptionally caring person, dedicated to his friends and community. He has touched and changed countless people. His smiling face and positive energy were taken from this world entirely too soon. We already miss you, Joel, and always will.
