That`s why we don`t use contracts in our martial arts school. Students continue their training because of the training provided, and if, for whatever reason, the student can no longer train, we want them to have the best possible experience when they talk about other things in their lives. Building a school in this way is indeed more difficult and slower, but in the long run it leads to a more stable and healthier school. It focuses on getting students that best fit what we do rather than trying to be everything to everyone. It leads our school to a better quality of martial arts training, to a happier, more committed student class, and to a martial arts school capable of keeping. I agree…. I`m not very law-ad. So my recommendation is that a proper probabyl lawyer. A martial arts teacher who has ethics (or lack thereof), To catch students with contracts like this, is probably not so interested in martial arts or teaching. I`m sure rogue kids won`t make a big difference as their first priorities are not teaching, but money…. I mentioned above that this is the most common question I get, but if you see the reasons, this is by far one of the most important questions.
If you ask whether or not they have a contractual system and they avoid the answer or you offer a free class, this is a BIG alarm. Stay in place until you receive your response. If they refuse to say anything, it`s your clue to find another studio. Now, if managed properly, it can be a lucrative source of capital for an emerging company. But it is often a disaster for the school: it turns the school into a shark. If this money is exhausted, the school is obliged to find more students to work with current operating costs (rent, electricity, salaries, etc.). To keep up. What at first looks like a big source of income quickly turns into pressure to get more students, sell more contracts and pay more students to keep up with expenses. At some point, they still have a school full of students who pay nothing, but who continue to cost money to spell out the death of the martial arts school. If you do not offer contracts, it forces the martial arts school to be disciplined in a different way; It`s not just about finding new students, it`s about growing up a group of supporters.
It focuses on maintaining and growing your students by providing the best possible experience. This, in turn, creates greater satisfaction, leading to more recommendations. I should say that I have never heard of contracts (here in Australia) that they may exist, but if there is a contract to encourage students to persevere in their martial arts training, I should question their ongoing commitment to martial arts. And on the school side, I`ve been at my school for almost 20 years, and we`ve had our ups and downs with membership and training figures. but we have never been at the point where we needed a treaty to help with financial stability. On the other hand, we have an annual fee (very cheap, because just pay our insurance fees and keep the dojo), but if students want to keep trying to try us for any time, they can only pay “occasionally” for any training of course, I think you should evaluate a school thoroughly before signing a contract. Avoid places that don`t allow you to take a few lessons for FREE. Make sure you are compatible with the teachers and the philosophy of the school. If you`re really uncomfortable with the idea of signing a contract, I`d take that as a sign that you`re not really comfortable with school. Hold on tight. What if you lose your job? What if you have a terrible event in your life that takes precedence over your martial arts training? When will the contract cease to become a soft boost to maintain training and will it be detrimental to the student and the goodwill of the company? The reality is that if someone wants to stop ass
