  • Martial Arts has grown

    Over the last few short decades, Martial Arts has grown
from being an obscure, cult-like obsession of just a
few to a mainstream, worldwide phenomenon. No
longer is it confined to dirty town halls or stuffy
basements. There are world-class training
facilities in virtually every city on the globe.
I truly believe that the key to continued success
in our schools and the industry as a whole is
offering the best classes possible by developing
the best instructors possible. This was written by one of the best martial artist in the business today Kyoshi Dave Kovar. Please share your thoughts with your fellow black belts ....

    Things that we should do to be the best Professional Martial Arts Instructor possible

    We often talk about all the things that we should do to be the best Professional Martial Arts Instructor possible. There are, however, at least twelve things that we want to avoid doing. Here they are the first 4: Don’t Argue. Logic and emotion are like oil and water; they don’t mix. Generally speaking, when we argue we become emotional and don’t think clearly. As our emotions become heightened, the likelihood of us saying or doing something that we might regret later increases dramatically. Also remember, winning an argument does little to win respect or friendship. Don’t Blame. When you point a finger at someone else, three fingers point back at you. Blaming ....

  • Communicate the WHY" to your parents and students...

    As teachers we are very good at teaching the "How" to do things. It's important that we don't forget to focus on the "Why". To the student, this can facilitate their learning by contextualising the technique into a relevant scenario. To a parent, it helps to paint the bigger picture of not just WHAT their children are learning, but WHY. If you don't have a parents / students Facebook group, I STRONGLY recommend you get one. This is where you can really connect with parents and students, with not just information about what is going on, but by engaging them in the WHY your club does what it does. This is the sort of post I put up in the group. It highlights a couple of great students, ....

  • Weekly Tip - Maximize Your Team

    Your team is by far your most valuable asset as a school owner or head instructor– are you making the most of it? Like any championship team, you need all the positions filled, an amazing starting lineup, and a supporting bench that you can count on. What does this mean? It means that you need to make sure everyone has a role to play. Even if someone isn’t leading a class, they should know what their role is. Having helpers to re-tie belts, set good examples, and keeping kids focused with one-on-ones goes a long way to keeping a class on track. Think of this like your a half back protecting the back line– even if not as obvious, everyone role is vital for the success ....

    Weekly Tip - Before the Belt Promotion

    Before the promotion event, make sure that your students are ready. This may sound obvious, but it can be surprising how often some instructors don’t pre-check their students’ performance before inviting them to a promotion event. Be sure they know exactly what they will be doing, you don't want them to feel nervous. You want them to feel confident and excited, so that they'll shine during their moment of achievement. Take time to practice in the classes before the belt promotion and have them arrive early for a "dress rehearsal" just before they promote. This particular "Prep Zone" can play a huge role in the success of your belt promotion events and can help increase student ....
