Discover How Hundreds of Smart School Owners Just Like You DOUBLED their Income,
While INCREASING the Quality of their Students, Even in the Midst of the Greatest
Recession Since the Great Depression
If You’re An Honest, Ethical School Owner, Who Has No Moral Objection to Making a
Six-Figure or Better Income in Exchange For Providing Great Service to Your Students,
You’re Going to Love This!
[content_box_grey width=”95%”]Dear Fellow Martial Arts Professional,
Sometimes, when you read headlines like the one above that make seemingly incredible claims about how much a company, a program, or a service can “help you,” I’m sure your inner voice “BS” detectors start buzzing. If you’re like me, and the many others I’ve worked with, then you might be feeling a little uneasy or skeptical right now about that claim.
While working on another project this week, we found a package that included more than 480 PAGES of glowing letters from school owners just like you telling me how I personally had helped them enhance their lives, improve their lifestyle — less headaches and more free time — and create a more much more successful martial arts school business in both financial terms and in terms of personal satisfaction!
You’ll find just a SMALL sampling of them in this package — some from well-known martial artists, others that you may never have heard of or met . We’ve included some so you could see for yourself the types of otherwise unbelievable results that you can have for your school in the coming weeks and months.
After taking a couple of hours and carefully studying these many success stories, it reminded me how VITALLY important your work is, and how many people YOU can help if you grow your school successfully. I truly believe that as Martial Artists, we are a chosen profession. I believe that you and I as professional teachers can have a massively positive impact on our students. In fact, that’s the only way to achieve long-term wealth and success running a martial arts school. Zig Ziglar best summed it up when he said, “You can have everything you like if you help enough other people get what they want.” The NAPMA Team and I have helped many thousands of schools literally go from “rags to riches.” And, YOU, as a Martial Artist, deserve to be rich.
You see, I SINCERELY BELIEVE that Martial Arts school owners like you, who TRULY care about their students, who are absolutely committed to delivering the highest quality program, and who are completely invested in helping their community DESERVE to earn a six-figure or better income, and to live a lifestyle similar to any other dedicated professional, such as an attorney, physician, accountant, or financial advisor. Frankly, we make much more of an impact on the lives of our student than just about anyone else — don’t you agree?
So perhaps now you can see why I’m on an unstoppable mission to help school owners like YOU create the future they so richly deserve! Don’t you deserve it too? —Stephen Oliver, 8th-Degree Black Belt, NAPMA CEO[/content_box_grey][line_break][/line_break][headline_cufon_font_centered color=”#128dc9″]What are the steps to growing your income
substantially by operating a successful
martial arts school?[/headline_cufon_font_centered][divider_bar_wide]divider [/divider_bar_wide][two_columns_1]Well, it’s a pretty simple formula. I’ll teach it to you here — free of charge:
First: Enroll Enough New Students
Depending upon your student retention, a single school location needs from 10 to 25 or more new students each and every month to grow and thrive. Are you hitting or exceeding those numbers each and every month?
If not, I guarantee you that with our program, you will have more than enough tactics and strategies including step-by-step “plug and play” systems for filling your school with new students each and every month.
The problem, really, is once I show you how to “open the flood gates,” your school will be flooded with prospective new students. I’ve proven over and over that through a variety of sources, ranging from community outreach, on-line, internal events to generate referrals and family addons,and advertising mechanisms, such as direct mail and even infomercials, we can, if you choose, literally have you
“drinking from the fire hose,” flooded with new prospective students — of the type that you WANT and are enthusiastic about welcoming to your family.
Second: You MUST Charge a reasonable Tuition Rate Up Front.
Now, I don’t know what you are charging. In my schools,[/two_columns_1] [two_columns_2]new students pay $249.00 per month initially, with a downpayment of $400 to $600.
Many of our successful member schools are charging anywhere from $150 to $300 monthly – and in some cases, more – for new enrollments.
What are you charging?
If you are not receiving, or are afraid prospects will balk at that amount of tuition, then you need to learn to create the perception and reality of value for your students and their parents for underage enrollments. This requires more than just an exciting introductory lesson.
In our NAPMA program, you will learn to create real value for your students — and the highest perception of value. This is the kind of value that makes your competition irrelevant in your prospect’s minds and creates the confidence to charge and receive what your program is really worth.
Now, before you second-guess yourself, let me tell you a short story.
Every year we have a “Black Belt Retreat & Testing” in Breckenridge or Keystone, Colorado. Our students test for three days, typically with little or no rest. Near the end, I always take the Black Belts (typically 200 or 300 of them) and the parents into a room and ask a simple question.
It goes something like this: “If I had a time machine and could take you back to the day you started in martial arts, if I would give you every[/two_columns_2] [line_break][/line_break][features_box_grey width=”95%” + border=”2px”][/features_box_grey][two_columns_1]
penny you’ve paid and every minute you’ve spent training back. Would you make a different decision?”
Well, everyone always says, “Hell no!”
Now, I ask: “What if I could take you back and give you $100,000, $250,000, even $1,000,000 to have decided NOT to train in martial arts. Would you take that deal?”
Now, I don’t know about your school — although if you are of the quality that I suspect you are, I’m assuming it’s true for you as well — but for our students, the answer is always and has always been “no way.”
If that’s true, if your training and the social and emotional development that your students go through on the way to Black Belt is really so valuable,why would you be hesitant to charge a tuition level that’s really both appropriate and adequate to give you REAL financial success along the way?
Now, you may be ready to say, “My students wouldn’t,” or, “In my town I can’t,” or, “Everyone else is charging $75 how could I?”
You’ve got to set that aside. I understand how you feel.
Most new members felt the same way coming into our program. What they’ve found is with developing the value of their program, improving how they communicate that value to prospective students, and, how they market to fill their pipeline with new students, that it works just fine in big and small towns and around the world (recently in Amsterdam, Bahrain, Australia, even South Africa among many others).
THIRD: You Must Have a Renewal System to Move Students to Really Commit Emotionally to Train to Black Belt and Beyond.
It doesn’t matter how good you are, if students drop out as a Gold Belt or Green Belt, are they really going to have the maximum benefit that you offer? See, you’ve got to have the process in place to help them become more and more committed to graduate to Black Belt, then train to advanced degrees with your school.
Along the way, you may implement additional levels of training (we’ll show you how) that will move some students, often up to 75-80%, into an higher intensity training. I’ve taught many schools how to move students to programs costing $397 or $497 monthly, and up to $997 monthly for schools offering semi-private or personal development.
Do you have a system in place that progressively upgrades students and maximizes your return? If not, you will learn how to accomplish that through the NAPMA program!
FOURTH, You Must REALLY Focus on Constantly Improving your Service Delivery to your Students.
Although this includes continually getting better and better at teaching your marital art — it’s MUCH, MUCH more than technical mastery.
It’s vital that your student retention continually improve, and that they receive higher and higher value from your teaching. Your students must continually grow in enthusiasm and commitment to your martial arts program.
You must produce fabulous Black Belts and students.
We’ll be teaching you about how to continually improve your student quality — never watering it down.
You must have reliable business and staff systems in place to insure that your marketing, sales, and motivational teaching systems happen consistently and predictably.
How’s your staff development? Can your school run efficiently without you being there every minute? We provide you with in-depth tools EVERY MONTH to empower you with the management methods you need to create a STRESSFREE business — all tested, proven and ready to implement.
All of that really sounds simple, doesn’t it?
You know that there is more to it than meets the eye.

and How Will it Help Me?[/headline_arial_large_centered][line_break]Insert Your Text Here[/line_break][two_columns_1]Our members are SERIOUS about growing their schools!
Some are focused on building large, multi-school organizations, others want to take their existing location to the next level, and yet others are transitioning from a part-time school to making their school a full time career.
Regardless of your specific objective, one of the FUNDAMENTAL skills you MUST master, is the skill of attracting enough new students into your school.
Enrolling Enough New Students
Depending upon the current size of your business, a single location needs 10 to 25 new students every month. In some cases, even more are required for the school to grow. If you are not hitting or exceeding those numbers, your school is at high risk for failure.
We guarantee you that with our program, you will have more than enough tactics and strategies — including step-by-step “plug and play” systems – to fill your classes with quality, enthusiastic students.
In fact, once we show you how to use our tested and proven marketing strategies, your problem will be how to manage the continuous influx of new students. We’ll[/two_columns_1] [two_columns_2]show you a variety of affordable, easy-to-use marketing strategies including community outreach, online internal events to generate referrals and family add-ons, and advertising mechanisms, such as direct mail and infomercials. Best of all, these will be the type of type of students who fit your preferred demographic.
