Medical History

Post by StuartHemming on Thu Jan 10, 2008 7:27 pm

I asked this question on the old board, but I think it got lost.

At the beginning of each time I have each student complete a medical questionnaire to get an feel for their general state of health as well as advance warning about any issues they have.

I also record any problems they they have exhibited during class and, if I have suggested that they see a quack and they don't, I record the fact and insist that they countersign the note.

I also discovered, just before the beginning of this term that I would be breaking the law if a student collapsed for any reason and I passed their questionnaire on to the emergency services, so I've had to add a release permission block to the questionnaire.

Does aqny one else do anything like this?

Just above the signature block I have the following:

I do/do not (delete as applicable) give permission for the above information to be released to the emergency services in the case of a medical emergency.

we do a lot of promotions with our local papers (try to get in one of them at least once a month )

i'll give you a good way to double your student base ( we have 173 at 1 venue alone) .
go to your local police , offer a free ( yes free) self defence course because of the growing local street and domestic violence (1 hour per week for 6 weeks)
and ask for indorsement .
you will get it and they will do a press release and give you backing .
at leasy 50% that attend will sign up.
do this every 3 months , alternateing between kids ( bully awareness) and adults ( street sense)
in 1 year you will more than double your student base easy.

we are aiming for 300 in the new venue (over half way in 3 months)

I'd be interested in hearing how you go about that.

The free self-defence course idea isn't really one I can follow up as I'm a tai chi instructor! Very Happy

any thing mate , whatever your speciality is , find a cause and jump on the band wagoon mate .
obesity is a major problem ( fat burners), stress is a major killer ( stress busters).
it sound cheesey but it works mate .
my base club running at maximum ( should be by april ) will take over 12,000 a month , thats 1 club.and i teach alone ( exept my girlfrien takes the tot's)
even do a sponored exrsise ( form) for a local charity .
if you do anything , even fart mate , tell the papers , they will print anything and it will reach more people than any flyer , and it's free .
the 4 weeks running upto christmas i was in every paper for 4 weeks for 1 reason or another .
here's a good one , phone your local paper and offer to do a piece on the sword ban ( from a martial artist point of view) and as a respected member of your comunity , just make sure you put your website and phone number at the bottom.
i just did it , got me 2 pages.
just some ideas ,
i'm just about to do another series for martial arts illustrated ( did'nt write over christmas) doing a section on low kicks , point of origin strikeing and pinn's and checks , should last most of the year .
then i'll go and tell my local paper and they will do a piece on me being in mai ( local man makes it big ect) , i'll get 20/30 students out of that.
cheers

sorry if that sounds callous but it is advertiseing , it does'nt affect my students or the quality of arts taught , just think of it like this ( it's how i justify it)
i want to have the best dojo , for me and my students , the best equipt and nicest enviroment , that takes money .
i will do what ever it takes to get that , it is my responsibilty to my students .
cheers

Some good things to think about there.

And right now I need more students. For one reason or another I've lost > 50% of my long term students since the summer.

I'll definitely be giving this some thought.

just looked at your web site mate .
my angle would be this

asertiveness classes .
60% of adults are bullied in the workplace or home.
i'd try this ( just a suggestion mate)

build your self esteme / residual self image/ confidence and assertiveness .
in a freindly relaxed enviroment , go home feeling a new person , with new goals and lease of life to combat this new year .
that resalution can be yours .
free 4 week assertion course , no strings attached .

then go to your local papers , and use a slightly different angle with each one.
like :
in our area domestic violence is up 75% , we're (you) trying to help combat the growing plight of local men and women.
or
street violence is up 55% , we are here to help people , the biggest factor in street crime is confidence and assertiveness , most attackers are looking for a victim .

stuff like that , they love it , and it gets people to now who and where you are , also raises your profile in the local comunity .
most of all it gets people thru the door , for free , your free class would only need be 45 minutes , once a week for 4 weeks .
thats 3 hours of your time .
put the classes before or after one of your existing classes .
get the new (free) students to come and watch ( they usually stay to see what goes on.)

may be worth a try mate .
cheers
