Important questions for martial arts school owners

I’ve been working with martial arts school owners and instructors since 1993.

Regardless of the decade, there is a predictable pattern for schools that end up like this. Closed forever.

Are you following that pattern?

let's learn about you

Did you do research to find out what would be the best martial art for you or did you just join the school that was closest and/or cheapest or your friend attended?

An Empty Cup

I chose my school only because they let me clean the school for lessons. I was completly immersed from class one.

I bet you were too.

The Influence of Black Belt

My instructors. What they taught me about karate became my belief system for martial arts. After all, they were black belts.

Sound familiar?

Just the facts

Did you accept, without question, that what your instructor taught was fact?

I certainly did.

highest form of flattery

Do you feel an obligation to your instructors to teach the same curriculum that they taught you?

I did.

mcdojo?

Were you directly or indirectly taught that a school that makes a lot of money must be a McDojo?

Unless they did it our way, they must just be in it for the money.

Where You Are Today

As a martial arts instructor are you treading water while still teaching 3-6 classes each night?

How much longer can you keep this up?

What is the end goal?

Do you want to retire comfortably sooner rather than later?

Less work. More Income.

Do you want a school that is easier to manage with fewer classes, more income and higher retention?

the market has changed

Have you noticed that the adult market see martial arts as a kids activity?

Teens see it as dorky

While they may want the benefits of martial arts today’s teen is not going to wear the full karate uniform or have to do the many skills that look weird.

why go there?

Have you noticed that kids are easily bored with complex kata and traditional blocks, punches, and deep stances?

Where Do You Want To Be?

Imagine that you only have  or two classes a night to teach with better student retention and higher income.

What difference would that make in your life?
