Martial Arts School Tackles Real Community Issues

NMAL's Kumite Fightclub Expanding Nationwide Through Franchising

Columbia, SC, July 14, 2013 --( The Kumite Fightclub has been "making people better for life" and assisting in the fight against crime for several years, and is now expanding nationwide through franchising. This is a ground-floor opportunity for existing studios to convert to a Kumite Fightclub or for entrepreneurs to establish a new martial arts school.

Like most martial arts schools, Kumite Fightclubs offer traditional structured white-to-blackbelt certification programs. But, Kumite Fightclubs also provide solution-based programs designed to resolve real community issues; including stress, domestic violence, bullying and obesity.

“Our Don’t Bully Me Program empowers children and teens who feel threatened by bullies to take a stand by learning positive solutions to resolve conflicts,” said Dexter Kennedy, a certified Blackbelt and President of The Kumite Fightclub. “Other programs include onsite self-defense for businesses; courses that educate women on how to fight back and regain control over domestic violence;health and fitness solutions for child/teen/adult obesity; and a teen social network called TeenScene.”

Kennedy has been studying the Martial arts since 1974, has been an instructor for 23 years and was Nationally-rated for seven years. He opened his first karate school in 1986, and is devoted to teaching Martial arts because he believes it makes a difference in children’s lives.

The Kumite Fightclub provides a place where people can learn the martial arts and enjoy the experience while making the commitment to study and improve their self-esteem, concentration, discipline and self-control. As students experience the programs they gain knowledge and experience that last a lifetime.

According to Kennedy, the martial arts industry is notorious for high membership turnover, with several reports placing the average attrition at 40 to 60 percent. A reason for the high turnover is because traditional martial arts facilities conduct business in a manner that is not conducive to the American way of continuous improvement.

“Our remedy for the high attrition rate is to offer specially-designed programs to fit each individual’s specific needs,” Kennedy said. “These include effective self-defense programs offered in 12-week sessions for people needing only self-defense; fitness programs managed and monitored by a certified trainer for people needing only to get fit; summer camps for children that are being bullied; quality white-to-blackbelt martial arts training programs; and more, at fair and reasonable prices.”

This is a great opportunity for people who truly want to help people. The cost to purchase and develop a new Kumite Fightclub is as low as $57,400. New franchisees get five days of training at the corporate office in South Carolina, an exclusive territory, comprehensive operations manual, unique marketing system, strong on-going operational support and more.

The Kumite Fightclub is also franchising the National Martial Arts League, which is poised to propel this exciting sport to a new level by bringing the fragmented martial arts world into organized events culminating in city/state championships across the nation! Competitors of all martial arts styles will be given an opportunity to represent their city or state team and compete for the National Championship -- The Kumite.
