The GAP is the divide between your martial arts experience and the market’s expectations
It’s safe to say:
1. You love the martial arts.
2. The martial arts improved your life.
3. You want to share that experience with others and make a good living doing it.
It’s also safe to say:
1. The only reason you were raised in your style is that it was taught in the school you joined.
2. You did not join the school seeking a style, forms, or any specific techniques.
3. You joined because it was geographically convenient and / or the cheapest option.
The love you have for your style, its techniques, and traditions is the result of indoctrination, not informed decision making. Simply put, you didn’t know what you didn’t know.
The GAP is the divide between your indoctrinated bias and the benefits that your prospects are seeking.
Empower Kickboxing™ strips away all of the complexity of style based martial arts and presents just the easiest to learn, most effective skills. The class focus is on different applications of these skills with an emphasis on conditioning.
The Result: The Gap is eliminated. The students learn skills and get fit much faster.
Martial Arts Management Starts With Prioritizing Your Day
Believe it or not, we’re 25% finished with this year. Freaky, I know.
No doubt you ended last year with high hopes for for the new year. How is that going? Congratulations to those of you who are on target to hit, or exceed your goals. For the rest of you, here is a martial arts management suggestion to help you gain more control of your day.
Start each week by determining the five most important, high return tasks that must be completed or moved forward that week.
List them in columns, then list, in order of importance, the steps you must take to accomplish the task.
Some steps will require you while others can be delegated.
Task 1 Task 2 Task 3 Task 4 Task 5
step 1 step 1 step 1 step 1 step 1
step 2 step 2 step 2 step 2 step 2
step 3 step 3 step 13 step 3 step 3
Here is the powerful part. Each day, block out time to ONLY attack whatever steps are next for your most important tasks on the list. Turn off email, tell your team you are not available, close all browser windows and make whatever you are working on full screen.
Stay with that task ONLY for the allotted time. You may only have time to attack one or two tasks each with this method, but you will move closer to your goals much faster.
