Being OPEN......Now, this sounds like a no brainer.
But we have talked to so many martial arts business owners and asked them about their hours of operation and far too many just decide to go in “when they feel like it,” or maybe it's an hour before classes start.
There's a big problem with that.
There's no other professional business in the country that I can think of. That does that, except martial artists, this is something that needs to stop.
Here's a quick story about a young martial arts school owner,
I owned my first martial art studio when I was 21. And I had two problems.
I was 21.
It was my first business.
Because I was, young and (business) dumb, I would come in whenever I felt like. I would go out and party and have a great time on the weekends (and ok on the weekdays too). Did I mention that I was 21?…
But what I did know was that I wasn't being as successful as I thought I could be.
Fortunately for me, my dad, who's the founder...
When you see my videos you can watch them on YouTube, on Facebook, on Instagram, on Twitter, you might see them on Reels, Tik Tok, Snapchat or LinkedIn.

Its also very important to understand that, love it or hate it, Social media is not going away anytime soon. You can romanticize about the past and be like, well, we used to do it this way. We used to do it that way. But eventually when you spend time dwelling on the past and how “it used to be”...
In this short video we show you a little of segment 2 of the best LOW COST/ HIGH IMPACT ways you can gain new members without spending any extra money.
As a Mastermind coach and a full time martial arts business owner, I've been getting this question asked to me a lot lately by other Martial Art school owners. The question is: “Should we raise our rates on our existing members?”
My successful high level coaching clients already know the answer, however, I wanted to take a few moments and clarify my opinion on this topic for all.
The short answer is no. Absolutely not.
It is my professional opinion, that raising rates to your current members is probably one of the single worst things that you could do in your martial art based membership business. There is a far better solution to make raising rates a win-win situation that I will explain in a moment.
But first, allow me to expand on why I say no:
…..Imagine you are a customer at a service based business and you've been there for awhile, you've been a loyal customer, you're mostly happy. Then, one day, the owner of the business comes to you and says, ...
Early in my training, I was at an event listening to a speaker talk about why our industry was stuck and what we needed to do to break out of the norm. The talk had the idea of how the people around you will affect you.
It reminded me of the story of the crabs.
You see, crabs in an open bucket will stay in their bucket. If one crab tries to climb out, the other crabs pull him back down. If he continues to try to climb out, the other crabs may pull off one of his legs to keep him in the bucket.
Why wouldn’t the other crabs watch how the crab gets out, so they know it can be done and so they know how to get out, too?
Instead the crabs in the bucket are more interested in keeping everyone else in the bucket.
The crab story reflects human nature. Other people – family, friends, co-workers – industry "experts" will try to drag someone that’s succeeding down to their level.
