Martial arts clubs have many different objectives but one that most want to achieve and maintain is financial stability. In the early years of starting a club coaches are often working in a full time role unconnected with coaching while also trying to build their club in their spare time. Trying to improve your coaching skills while working full time is tough enough without even considering building your business skills and systems. Creating a financially stable club that is is not complicated but this is not the same as being easy. In essences to grow your club you simply need to obtain more students that you loose. To do this you need martial arts business systems.
We believe that you should not only be able to build a financially stable club but the club should also provide you and any staff with a reasonable income that is at least on par with what you could earn in a comparable role working for someone else. While it should be recognised that the business side of running a club is important, this should be done in an ethical manner. As martial artists it is important that we live the values we preach to our students.
