Teaching as a Career:

Becoming a Martial Arts Teacher is one of the most rewarding careers.

Transforming people confidence, coordination and health, brings much pleasure.

You get paid to do what you love.

Also keep yourself healthy and happy doing what you are passionate about.

Unfortunately most people consider becoming a Wing Chun Kung Fu Teacher a daunting task.

Individuals may fear someone will challenge them to a fight to prove themselves.

They may also fear failure that the business may not work.

There is nothing to fear except yourself, open your mind and anything is possible.

Martial Arts Lifestyle

Individuals should think of Martial Arts as a lifestyle.

Movement is essential to maintaining good health.

Wing Chun is based on natural body movement.

This enables an individual to train for many years without damaging the body.

Wing Chun training enhances ones focus, balance, builds strength and bones.

It also uplifts internal strength, improves coordination, agility.

Giving you full range of motion in all limbs, uplifts action reaction time.

Kung Fu improves quality of Life

Being involved in Martial Arts ultimately improving ones quality of life.

Improved self-esteem is a key psychological benefit of regular physical activity.

When you exercise, your body releases chemicals called endorphins.

These endorphins interact with the receptors in your brain that reduce your perception of pain.

Endorphins also trigger a positive feeling in the body, similar to that of morphine.

For example, the feeling that follows a workout is often described as “euphoric.”

That feeling, known as a “runner’s high,” can be accompanied by a positive and energizing outlook on life.

Endorphins act as analgesics, which means they diminish the perception of pain.

They also act as sedatives.

Regular exercise has been proven to:

  • Reduce stress
  • Ward off anxiety and feelings of depression
  • Boost self-esteem
  • Improve sleep

Exercise also has these added health benefits:

  • Strengthens your heart.
  • Increases energy levels.
  • Lowers blood pressure.
  • Improves muscle tone and strength.
  • Enhance bone density.
  • Reduce body fat.
  • Look fit and healthy.

Effective Exercise

Research has shown that exercise is an effective treatment for mild to moderate depression.

With all these benefits it would seem irresponsible for an individual to stop training.

Once an individual has reached their peak in their respective art, what is there left to do?

Most individuals will leave.

Within 12 months an individual will be putting on weight,.

Skill level will have dropped.

The body will be starting to get stiff and tight, agility is slowing.

The mind will start to become more stressed and blood pressure will begin rise.

It is not a great prospect.

Most individuals do not want to open their own martial arts school.

An option is helping to teach at your school, from experience the more instructors the better.

Teaching gives an individual a sense of purpose.

It will raise your verbal understanding of your system dramatically.

Clients are always asking questions especially beginners.

You will be amazed at the new level of understanding you will gain through giving instruction.

A student does not need to be Government Accredited for this option.

Starting to Teach

Another option is to hire a hall and teach once or twice a week after work.

It’s a great way to earn some extra cash for the Xmas holidays.

By hiring a hall, there is no commitment, if business does not take off, you are able to move on.

This is a very safe investment.

A third option  is to set up a studio on your property.

There are a multitude of people working in home studios due to the costs of overheads,

Personal trainers, boxing gyms, karate, yoga and Pilates etc. etc.

This is the best option so far.

Walk out your back door and start working, what could be better than that.

The choices are yours, all you have to do is make one.

The most important thing is to paint your picture.

Have your heart in it and it will work, all one has to do is give it a go.

Just remember all things take time and effort.
