Frequently Asked Questions

What is Empower Kickboxing?

EMPOWER KICKBOXING™ is a complete martial arts curriculum designed by Joe Lewis’ protege John Graden as a program that students can MASTER FASTER!

Do I need to drop my current curriculum?

No. You may and most of you will, but you may want to simply insert various elements of EKB into your current program until you get comfortable with the program.

We’re confident most schools will transition over but we’re happy to let them do it on their time.

Is there a class I have to take to be ready to teach?

You must complete the MATA Certification Program within year one. The $297 Certification Fee is waived for Empower Kickboxing licensees.

What about rank?

While this will vary school to school and system to system, we suggest you look at the EKB ranking system for year one. You then match up the EKB ranks with your students’ ranks.

For instance, if you have an XYZ color student who has been training for six months, that would equate to a EKB High Orange or Green belt. So, rather than having to go through six two-month semesters, this student might only do three semesters and then graduate into the Intermediate Year Two EKB Program.

How should i prepare?

Start introducing the techniques to your students in class to build support and excitement. Create enthusiasm for these combinations before making changes to requirements. We will help you make the transition. In our experience, students really enjoy the combinations and see the Instant Value they bring to the class.

Can I change my school name to Empower Kickboxing™?

No. Empower Kickboxing™ is the name of the branded curriculum. Think about a camera store that sells Nikon. They advertise that they sell Nikon, but the store name is not Nikon. Empower Kickboxing™ is like that. You may be USA Karate which offers the Empower Kickboxing™ curriculum.

Do I need to leave my current organization?

That’s entirely up to you. EKB doesn’t require you to be exclusive to EKB. Mr. Graden has always had the philosophy that the freedom to learn and grow shouldn’t be restricted by politics.

“I’ve had my school for 26-years and coming into COVID, I realized I needed to simplify what I was teaching. John Graden has a proven record of innovation and leadership for martial arts school owners. Empower Kickboxing works.”

Co-Owner, Stockton Karate

Teaching the basic skills in Empower Kickboxing helped me retain students over COVID and teach online. I didn’t lose one student because of the transition. They all loved the new curriculum.
