A Chat with Martial Arts World of Elgin
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition? We offer after-school pick-up from local schools to our facility for the after-school martial arts program. We start as young as 3 years old and offer more than 25 classes a week to fit any schedule. Kids develop a yes-I-can attitude and improved manners and focus.
What's one tip for first-time students that will make them feel like veterans? Bring a bottle of water, a towel, and an open mind and relax, and most of all, enjoy yourself. Know that you can yell as loud as you want to get rid of all the stress that has built up all day long.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business? I looked at other schools in the area and saw that there was something missing. The missing parts were pushing the students to their limits to make them better to build them up emotionally and physically—teaching more than kicking and punching, but also making it fun.
What do you love most about your job? I get to watch people grow to be strong minded and physically fit—to see someone who was shy become out going and confident.
