We start you out with our instructor training. Three or four days of intense classes in which you will learn the level 1 techniques, how to teach and how to run a Krav Maga gym including marketing, how to talk to customers, how to run an effective intro, how to run classes, etc. We do not bring you in to show you how tough we are, to flunk as many as possible or to let you leave at the end not knowing if you passed. We believe that Krav Maga is good for people and that it will keep them safe. Our goal is to teach others this system to spread it throughout the U.S.
We have done everything over the years for advertising and have come to realizing that social media is where it’s at right now. Over 1 billion people are on Facebook! We have teamed up with the social media gurus at Social Media Dogo who work with major companies to get them noticed! We will show you how to run ads, boost posts and (a USKMA exclusive) give you content to use on your social media platform several times per week. We will give you the official USKMA social media plan which we guarantee will get you page likes, and more people in the door! We also have the USKMA phone app available for free to our affiliates. Wherever you are pull up videos of all USKMA techniques, drills, teaching templates, test forms, staff meetings, etc. The student version of the app can also be a great teaching and retention tool to give to your students. Yet another service for our affiliates is the recent hiring of Chuck Heacock as our sales trainer. Chuck has been a leading fitness and krav maga gym sales guru for thirty five years and was trained by the legendary Jack Lalanne! His training on getting prospective members into the gym and getting them signed is invaluable…another USKMA exclusive!
We schedule level one instructor trainings at gyms across the nation several times during the year, check “events” page of USKMA.com and “events” on our Facebook page for training dates. You will leave our instructor training with a great knowledge of all of our level one techniques as well as some level two and weapon disarms. Another option for affiliate training is for us to come to your gym to train and test your staff for the four days. The training is $1,960 ($1,460 for 3 day) plus airfare and hotel for 1 instructors. By the time we leave you and your staff will have our lesson plans for level 1 and know how to run classes, how to do intros, how to market, what to say on the phone, how to run a test, etc.
All of this for what you will get for two sign ups per year. That’s right, if you follow our system and sign two students in one year to a 12 month agreement we paid for ourselves. We can guarantee our system will help you sign many more than that! We will give monthly video staff meetings, drill of the month, technique of the month, marketing material, etc. and show how at our Ohio gym we were signing an average of 48 adults per month over a two year period. You will also be given access to the affiliate page of our web site and phone app. This site is your one stop shop for running a Krav Maga gym. On the site are videos on how to run intros, classes, tests and drills as well as lesson plans, how to write a press release, marketing material, ad photos and much, much more (see our list below).
We would love to include you in our upcoming training.
