Teacher’s Certificate Program
The purpose of the Teacher’s Program is to graduate competent, professional level instructors of Temple Knights Martial Arts. This program will allow individuals with teaching aspirations the opportunity to develop their skills to the highest possible level. Teaching is a skill that must be learned. Many highly proficient martial artists have failed to establish successful schools because they lacked the appropriate teaching and business skills. This program is based on Temple Knights teaching experience since 1982 and success in the martial arts. Teaching martial arts for self defense, fitness, health and well being is not only personally rewarding but can also be financially rewarding as many professionals will tell you. Whether you are looking for a career in the martial arts or simply wanting to increase your personal level of competence, Temple Knights Teachers Program will challenge you to your highest potential.
Personal skill level – This part of the program will be an ongoing one on one critique and instruction of form and technique with the aim of bringing the participant to his or her highest level of ability.
Interpersonal Skill – teaching requires many skills such as effective listening, speaking, body language, understanding your students, learning methods, maintaining discipline, conflict resolutions, developing trust and inspiring students, ethical instruction and leadership.
Business Skills – A successful teacher needs to apply his or herself to the business side, with the same enthusiasm that is applied to the arts. Therefore the study of business skills such as financial management, office organization, sales, advertising and promotion will all be covered in this program.
Teacher’s Certificate Program – A 4 year program in Tai chi and/or Kung fu, consisting of detailed study of form, chi theory, practical application and strategy, teaching technique, business, advertising and public relations.
