3 Daily Actions to Take to Succeed as a Martial Arts School Owner by KJN Richard Hackworth

3 Daily Actions to Take to Succeed as a Martial Arts School Owner by KJN Richard Hackworth

As a professional martial arts instructor and school owner you have daily responsibilities that need to become daily habits. Your success in any area of your life is a direct reflection of your daily habits, those things that you do regularly – whether you feel like it or not.

Today I want to take a moment to share with you 3 habits that all successful school owners practice on a daily or weekly basis that contribute to their long-term success.

  1. Committing to Daily Learning

Every week you see me share in my videos what books I am reading. There is a reason for the existence of popular sayings such as ‘readers are leaders’, ‘learners are earners’ and ‘learn more to earn more’.

All the most successful martial arts instructors and those successful in any endeavor commit to daily learning.

The most successful people around the world, including Bill Gates, Oprah Winfrey, Tony Robbins, and Mark Zuckerberg commit to at least 5 hours of deliberate learning per week.

That means you can set aside 1 hour 5 days a week or 40-45 minutes each day. You can even set a side one day a week devoted to 5 hours of deliberate learning.

It doesn’t really matter how you choose to spread it out if you commit to the 5-hour rule each week.

  1. Practicing Your Craft

Learning theory is great, but it doesn’t count for much unless you go out and apply it. The best instructors in the world not only have book smarts, but they also make sure to put it into practice.

It’s important to go out and get your hands dirty so you can better relate to your clients and what you are putting them through. This will give you more conviction when trying to influence them.

For example, how are you going to have any conviction in getting your students to follow a healthy diet or practice drills and forms every day when you have never done it yourself.

Practicing your craft daily also gives you an opportunity to refine your methods and systems and add your own unique element to it rather than going purely off what someone else advises. We call this leading by example, and it is powerful!

  1. Providing Your Students with High Quality High Value Content

These days the martial arts industry has become so saturated, especially the online space, so you need to make some noise in order to be seen and heard.

You might not need a fancy website or a funnel, but you need a medium for sharing high quality, high value information with your current students and your prospective clients, where they can reach out and contact you. I personally do this on Instagram, Facebook and YouTube.

By providing your students and prospects with high quality, high value content on a regular basis, you will be at the forefront of their mind and the one they turn to for advice. This ensures you always have a steady influx of new prospective students while building a solid system of retention with your current ones.

To your health, wealth, and success,
Richard Hackworth
