I teach them virtually for free. All they pay for is the small monthly fee to belong to the online school-- only $19.99 per month. In exchange for their membership to the online school, they get instruction free of charge, promotions free of charge -- they simply agree to be members of the site and appear in instructional videos for the site and for DVDs.
It's a win-win situation.
I'm extending this offer to others in the Quad Cities. We will accept new students, but there is a catch or two. I'm looking for experienced martial artists who are 16 years old and over. If you have studied other arts in the past -- even if you didn't get very far in those arts -- you can study with us and save a lot of money.
If you're interested, you can email me, join the online school, and start coming to our practices. I'll teach you the arts and you can help our small core group grow.
You must be in good physical shape and able to do the rigorous training required -- including sweeps and other takedowns, joint locks, sparring, and physical exercises. You must also be willing to appear in instructional videos.
And there's one more catch -- you must be serious about it. If you are just looking for "cheap" and don't want to put in the time to practice on your own and work hard, you will not be able to stay in the classes. Slackers do not apply.
It's a pretty sweet offer for people who are interested and serious about learning quality martial arts.
