Staff Training Week – No Classes: Monday Jun 17th Through Saturday
Our staff will spend time renewing certifications, polishing their skills, and creating a better dojo for us all. Being a martial arts instructor is demanding. We insist that people are working out, training and improving their physical skills. But honestly, the physical skills are the easy part.
What we really work hard on are our communication skills, our motivation skills, our teaching skills. It is a totally different approach from most businesses. Even school teachers often get less training in these areas than your Sensei does. We will be diving deep into interpersonal skills like de-escalation, personality profiles, character assets, crime prevention and violence intervention.
