a fitness center for the whole family
Are you ready to take control of your health and well being, and relieve the stress of the daily routine of work? Muhammad’s Boxing and Martial Arts Center (MBMAC) could be the answer the public has been looking for. Punching your way into shape, and starting a new and enriching lifestyle that will ultimately lead you to mental and physical self-improvement, may be the answer many fitness enthusiasts have been looking for.
Located on the main stretch of the business end of King George at 7979 Kings Highway, the center is easy to find. For the past seven months, men and women of all ages have embraced the idea of staying in shape, while learning the finer aspects of self-defense.
Owner and MBMAC instructor Yusuf Muhammad’s short-range business goal was to educate the public on the science of staying in shape while focusing on self-defense. “It was important to me that I make my facility inviting for everybody.” Muhammad said. “I didn’t want the old gym images of spit buckets and people using foul language. I want my clients to be comfortable here, and I want to keep it clean. I demand that everybody respect one another.”
Noteworthy as an accomplished martial arts expert, Muhammad’s qualifications speak volumes about his dedication. He spent 35 years as a law enforcement officer, which included being police chief in the city of Glen Arden, Md. For 10 years, he served as a defensive tactics officer, where he trained police officers on the basics and advanced officer training levels.

Washington and Lee’s second annual Montrossity Wrestling Invitational provided an excellent day of wrestling in Montross despite wintry weather and a uniquely disappointing visit from a solid wrestling squad by way of New Jersey. AAA power Brooke Point won the tournament, following in the footsteps of 2008 Montrossity champions and their Commonwealth District rival Mountain View.
Defending AAA state champions Colonial Forge sent a “B” team, which placed a close second and home standing W&L took the third spot.

Basketball fever is hotter than ever before at the College of Southern
Sports Editor Maryland. Since 2008, the connection between the Northern Neck metropolitan area and the CSM’s lady basketball team is growing stronger.

First the chicken, then the goose egg
A game hen from Food Lion, decapitated and hanging in apparent effigy at Washington and Lee: $6.99. Canceling practice because of a nor’easter from Wednesday until Monday’s game and failing to adequately prepare for Colonial Beach’s unique single wing offense: $3.49 for Rolaids for Coach Malcolm Lewis’ heartburn. The Eagles beating the Drifters 41-0 despite it all in the regular season finale: priceless.
