A Chat with San Rafael Martial Arts
Exercise is challenging. How do you keep clients motivated and engaged?
After 37 stripes and 9 color rank tests, you will earn your black sash. Although the ranking may be why you start, the journey is why you will stay. Learning the hand, animal, and weapon forms keeps our school traditional. Applying the techniques in these forms make this a complete martial art.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Through many personal-improvement books, a recurring recommendation was to do what you love. I have tried many other activities. Martial arts was the one I fell in love with. I enjoy passing on my passion and seeing the results of the students’ hard work shine through.
What do you love most about your job?
The thing I love most about my job is that it does not feel like a job. I get to share my passion with others on a daily basis. I love seeing the progress in all students as they achieve their goals. My goal is to make sure all students achieve their goal, making their rewards my rewards.
