)-- In contrast to the down economy, many martial arts schools are enjoying a strong year mostly due to the popularity of mixed martial arts. With the coming debut of "The Karate Kid" remake with Jackie Chan schools are preparing for another influx of students. One of the professions' leading experts, John Graden, is hosting a bootcamp to help school owners maximize their operations. His Martial Arts School Breakthrough Bootcamp (mataseminar.com) will help owners with online and offline martial arts marketing strategies along with creating operational systems and gaining media attention.
While the first, "The Karate Kid" film created a huge surge in children joining the martial arts school, the mma movement as created a strong market for teens and young adults. Graden, the founder of the world's largest martial arts professional association, The Martial Arts Teachers' Association, says the martial arts school of today is in the midst of a transformation, Graden says, "Today, the goal with a school is to reduce the amount of admin and complexity in every area from the office to the curriculum."
According to Graden, these types of bootcamps can make all the difference for a school owner. Graden shares the story of one owner who had to choose between rent and attending a bootcamp; "This guy was down to his last $99 and he chose to invest it by attending my bootcamp. At the camp, he won a drawing for a copy of my first book "Black Belt Management." The book and the bootcamp literally changed everything for him. Within a year, he was up to 230 students and earning over $80,000 per year. That's powerful."
The bootcamp is May 1, 2010 at the Sheraton Sand Key on Clearwater Beach, FL. Graden is the founder of the most successful martial arts professional organizations in the history of the martial arts in America and the author of many books on the subject of operating a successful martial arts business.
