This is a document showing some numbers from a school owner, a member of The 100., who will remain anonymous. It's going to take me awhile to figure out what all this means --and there are some stats missing that would broaden the picture of the numbers and how…Continue
You are, I know, a deeply sincere teacher of the martial arts. People who are opportunists or disingenuine aren't attracted to my work, as I don't dispense sales hyperbole or garbage.
My approach is, I know, different --and hard work; interesting, yes, and often shockingly different from…Continue
You will always lose students --the goal is to do what you can, honestly, to keep people from leaving --before they actually get to…Continue

I am making changes --with the goal of getting very different results in…Continue

We ended up signing up a few students out of this. We are now running this event for the 2nd year.
How To Promote It:
