Self Defense Instruction Classes
If you are an expert in martial arts or self defense and are looking for a new career, consider becoming a self defense trainer.
As a self defense trainer, you will provide instructions and programs designed to help people fight off attackers using proven techniques. You could lead courses in martial arts such as Karate, which focuses on utilizing moves such as kicking and punching, or Aikido, which teaches the tactic of using your attackers’ own strength and power against him.
You might also be interested in teaching a self defense course specifically designed for women or children, so that they can feel safer walking down dark streets. These programs teach victims how to fight off an armed attacker who may have a gun or other weapon.
Of course, if you want to make martial arts or self defense instruction your profession, you should be an expert in martial arts or self defense. If you aren’t, but you still have a love for these services, you might consider opening your own dojo, or martial arts studio, where other instructors can rent space to offer their classes and programs. To open your own business, you may want to consider a degree in business or finance, and you should still have at least a general understanding of the sports you will host in your space.
Whether your interest in providing martial arts and self defense services is recreational, or because you want to teach your clients to protect themselves, you have the opportunity to build an exciting and rewarding career.
