The author is adamant about letting potential future martial arts students know about common financial, advancement, and safety pitfalls that many early trainees fall into. The author, who is a martial arts instructor, is interested in disclosing what he or she believes to be the rights and courtesies all martial arts students should be granted when they embark on a training journey.

Key Takeaways:

  • This post is my attempt to clarify to potential and new martial arts students what I think they have a reasonable right to expect in their training.
  • This disclosure should happen prior to the beginning of training, and if there is a contract involved, fees should detailed in the contract that is signed
  • It just means that it’s reasonable to expect to have an outline of what a student needs to learn in order to gain rank, including if participation in tournaments is required.

“Beginning training in the martial arts, especially as an adult, is pretty difficult. There’s a lot of misconceptions out there about what it entails.”
