Martial arts adverts

Post by jediwarrior on Fri Feb 22, 2008 8:17 pm

Just a rant i got

I`m fed up of reading in papers and magazines " Train to be a martial arts instructor in 12 month + "

this really get to me as a martial artist because how can you get all the year and expertise needed to be a instructor in 12 to 18 months. No one can get to skill knowledge in any art. I like so many train for years and hard to learn everything possible and know it inside out and work for it and then you read this crap learn this or that in this time.
It make a mockery of any art and just show how low people will go to get there and say i teach this and know nothing about it to me it`s just lowering the standereds or the martial arts world and shows lack of respect.

thats my rant

Money, money and more money.
It's not about providing a martial arts system, just about generating income and because there are no agreed industry standards then it's always going to be there.
The fact that they turn out some 1/2 way decent students shows the talent that's getting wasted. I've had a couple of guys join me or the years and they weren't bad, not instructors - students.
Think how many more got lost!
Mind you it's no different to Prof. Clark refusing to grade me 30 years ago because I hadn't got the right badges on my gi and couldn't afford to buy them at the grading.
Money talks - it shouldn't but it does.
Would I teach for free - probably, do I teach for free? Sometimes, if a student loses their job then I'd rather they stayed training.
Will I do a course for free NEVER.
