Joe and Vithyea (Tia) Morris, founders of Condition 1 Combat Center, started this school because they see a need in the community. Joe is a 2nd Dan Krav Maga Black Belt Instructor and has been training in Krav Maga since 2008. He is also a Marine Veteran who conducted combat operations missions in Iraq. Their vision is to provide real-world training so people can defend themselves if a dangerous situation ever occurs. They also plan to give back to our military and first responders by offering special training sessions for them.

Condition 1 Combat Center

Our mission is to train people to be Condition 1 ready. In the military, to be "Condition 1" means a weapon is loaded with a magazine inserted, a round is in the chamber and the safety is on.
