Father Sues Karate School

Father Sues Karate School

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. – A father alleges his son’s leg was broken in a karate class in Feb. 2018 is suing the school.

A father sued the school and his son’s training partner, alleging they “negligently” caused his son’s injury.

The suit, filed in state Supreme Court, St. George, seeks unspecified monetary damages.

According to a civil complaint, the plaintiff, a resident listed as “K.B.,” was practicing with another student identified only as “D.D.”

The complaint contends the plaintiff asked the other boy to “stop using a karate move,” but D.D. failed to listen to or hear him.

As a result, D.D. fractured the plaintiff’s leg, even though it should have been apparent he was hurting his partner, said the complaint.

The complaint alleges loud music inside the school distracted the defendant, and instructors didn’t supervise the boys properly.

The suit names the corporate name of the school, as a defendant, along with the workout partner through his mother.

The plaintiff seeks unspecified monetary damages.

3 Reasons to Host a Summer Camp

While regular martial arts classes can dip in attendance over the summer with students going on vacations, there are still plenty of families that need a safe, structured place for their children to be at Monday – Friday. Here are three strong reasons why to promote and host a summer camp. 1. Tuition Income According to Care.com, the average rate for a sports camp ranges from $500 – $1,000 per week. On the lower end, a summer camp hosted by the local community recreation center can be a little as $50 per week. Most martial arts schools range from $75 – $275 per week for an 8 – 10-week summer camp. Here is what the income potential is for a $149 per week camp. This doesn’t include snacks, exam fees, uniforms, and sparring gear.

2. Feed Your After-School Program. One of the main reasons schools host summer camps is that a high percentage of the kids in the camp will transfer into your after-school program. 3. Massive Retention If you host an exciting summer camp, you have a great chance of enrolling the kids into your after-school or regular evening classes. However, there is a big difference in retention. Evening/standard classes struggle to keep kids for even 8 – 12 months. However, because an after-school program is structured to be part of the weekday routine, the kids stay with the program for years. It’s not uncommon for kids to stay with your after-school program for 5 – 8 years. They just get used to it like going to school each day.
