New Professional Martial Arts Trainer!
Congrats to Craig Ing!
Here is his win…
Attached is my completed Professional Martial Arts Instructor test and here are my “wins”.
A little about myself, I am a Kinesiotherapist specializing in orthopedics, I have degrees in kinesiology and education, I am a personal trainer and a martial arts instructor/school owner. I completed your Master Instructor course in 2015 and loved the content. Although I use the seven corrections, CBM and the teaching format, I was intrigued by the concept of your Professional Martial Arts Instructor textbook and certification. Not with the hopes of getting a job, rather I was interested in continuing to grow and improve as a teacher.
I found the book to be full of great information. What’s more, there is a legitimate rationale behind everything in the text; each concept serves a purpose. It’s never about just doing something for the sake of doing something. I appreciate, and admittedly get a small sense of validation, in finding that much of what I am currently doing as a martial arts instructor is outlined in the book.
My first “win” comes from incorporating …. with my students. In the past I used it with my own students but got away from it due to time constraints. Introducing it to my students now, I have found improvements in their forms and postures and better fluidity in their movements.
My big “win” however, comes from your (force/flow formula). This sums up what I have tried to impart to my students but have often struggled with. This little algorithm essentially simplifies the concept of yin yang as it relates to the martial arts, so much that I could almost see the proverbial light bulb go on for one student in particular.
Thanks for another great course.
Thanks to you,
I just want to point out something,
tying on the black belt is great,
but it really means
your education has just started.
You should pick up new techniques,
find new drills,
practice things that you might have laughed at in the past,
because you realize that every system is unique,
every system has something to offer.
A real black belt has an open mind,
is protective of his Closed Combat Systems,
and is a student for life.
It works for Craig,
and every other GOOD instructor I have ever met.
I hope it works for you.

if you want to see about actually making money
from your knowledge of the martial arts…
Have a great work out!
