A Chat with Velocity Martial Arts
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
No small garages or malls, this is a huge athletic facility, designed for performance and safety. Unbeatable monthly tuition with no contracts, no forced purchase of uniforms, belts/testings, or equipment. This is a train to win class, not pay to win. This groupon is for a full month of class!
What's one tip for first-time students that will make them feel like veterans?
For your first class, a new student should do two things. First step, relax. No one is perfect, even if we train to be. Secondly, don't be afraid to have fun or try something new.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Having trained for many years, I began to realize a pattern in a majority of martial arts organizations. Progress became more about how much students are willing to pay, not what they are willing to achieve. VMA punches a hole through that model.
What do you love most about your job?
VMA is a philosophy, a way of life. Martial Artists train not just for self-defense, but to overcome obstacles in all aspects of life. As a teacher, I am surrounded by athletes and goal setters. It is a healthy and engaging atmosphere where we are all encouraged to become the best we can be.
