I am currently on my way home from a four day, back-to-back seminar tour. On Thursday, I did a Business Boot Camp in Denver. On Friday and Saturday, I did an Instructors College and a Recruiting/Retention/Re-activation Clinic in Des Moines. Finally, today I did another Instructors College in Chicago.
Over the past few days, I have had the chance to meet and interact with nearly two hundred martial arts professionals. As always, I heard some amazing success stories, and once again I am reminded of why I love teaching martial arts.
It IS life altering.
Martial arts can transform a shy little girl into a confident, self assured young lady. It can help a wild, ADHD diagnosed little boy channel his energy into becoming a focused, enthusiastic young man. It can take an anti-social, rebellious teenager and turn them into a happy, self-assured, goal-aspiring role model. It can help an over stressed, out of shape, middle aged man get his health AND his mojo back. It can turn an overworked, fearful, thirty something mother into a fearless warrior-athlete.
I might be a bit biased, after all, teaching martial arts is my profession, but with that said, I know it is true because I have seen it happen…time and time again. And so have many of you.
Martial arts has the answer to a lot of questions…Spread the word.
