A Chat with Strong Heart Martial Arts
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
While our students have won tournaments at all ages, it’s our emphasis on self-improvement at all ages that sets us apart. It’s not only the perfection of technique as much as the perfection of character; [that] is our motto. We have an open learning environment where all physical gifts or lack of are accepted.
Exercise is challenging. How do you keep clients motivated and engaged?
We call you if you don’t show up, to check on you and make sure you’ll be coming in as soon as possible. We also assign senior students to the new students to make sure you’re getting a greater understanding of the technique. Plus the senior students have struggled when they started and will help you.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Martial arts changed my life. It taught me to set goals. Each belt was a goal … This concept changed everything I did in life. After that I knew I wanted to be a martial artist, and spread the life-changing benefits of martial arts.
What do you love most about your job?
I love seeing the transformation in people. Either losing weight or building confidence, quitting smoking, learning goal setting. It’s like polishing rusty chrome and now they shine.
