Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
When meeting with a new student in person or on Zoom we will discuss their needs and how we will address them. Together we will establish a training routine including the day and time for your lessons, and the training routine for days you are not training in person.
We will asses your previous experiences, your current fitness level, and what goals you seek to achieve.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I'm a 4th degree Black Belt in Shaolin Kempo Karate and I've been teaching since 2003.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.
Lessons are 45 minutes, and equal to a one on one private class in a martial arts school. This includes kicking pads, focus pads, and other training equipment that I will supply for lessons.
Lessons are now $75 for the first person, with each additional person at $10 per person, per lesson, with no limit to group size.
How did you get started teaching?
Teaching is a required activity at Black Belt and higher for students to gain advanced levels of proficiency and understanding.
Once I began teaching I found it to be very rewarding.
What types of students have you worked with?
I've trained a wide variety of students ranging in ages from 4 to 84.
What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
Determine exactly what your needs are first; fitness, flexability, self-defense, discipline, or anything else you may want to achieve. Once your goals are clear you will be able to make a much more informed decision.
Be sure that the person you're talking to can provide what you need, and not just what they're selling.
What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?
Ask what the primary focus of what it is they teach, and ask yourself if it aligns with your goals and needs.
