A Chat with Northwest Martial Arts
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Voted Best Martial Arts School for 10 years in a row. Owner and head instructor has a master’s in education and has over 30 years experience in martial arts. Northwest Martial Arts has been in business in the Carson Valley for over 20 years.
What’s one tip for first-time students that will make them feel like veterans?
You can never bow too much or say, “Yes, sir,” or “Yes, ma’am,” too much. Come in ready to show great manners and you’re already on your way to being a black belt!
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I was inspired by the people who wanted to learn what I taught. They encouraged me to show more and more people what martial arts could do for them.
What do you love most about your job?
It’s fun! I love seeing the joy on kids’ faces when they accomplish something they didn’t think they could, or they master a skill that has been a challenge for them. And the pride on their parents’ faces—nothing is better than that!
