Let Us Uphold These Obligations as Instructors

I know my fellow Instructors, who have taught Law enforcement with Instructor Calasanz Martinez. He wrote :

“..officers have no time to waste with useless techniques in their martial arts training. What they need is something that works and the conditioning and stamina to execute these techniques in a high intensity confrontation….

Martinez. further wrote “…It is the obligation of a marital arts instructor to prepare not only police officers, but also the general public, for such unhealthy or life-threatening confrontations. Unfortunately, some martial artists are making a lot of money marketing a lot of empty promises…”

I agree %100 , let us uphold these obligations.

  1. James,

    It IS IMPORTANT that you ask questions of a potential instructor:

    * How long have you been training and when did you start teaching?

    * How would you describe your teaching style?

    * What do you value most about your personal training?
    * Why do you teach Martial Arts?
    * Does your school teach law enforcement?
    * Could you give me some recommendations of students, that are law enforcement ?
    * What kind of techniques are most central to your style and why?
    * What percentage of instruction is in Self defense vs. sport?
    * How large are the classes that I would attend?
    * Tell me about your fees and methods of payment?(ie. monthly or is it a contract?)

    Humbly posted,
