Wow, I'm still going and I've had students come and go, I've changed the name and the way I teach, The Syllabus and the Kata have changed too. I have lowered the level of contact from Full to in-between Semi and Full Contact and Got 2/3 grading for Black Belts this year!
I'm looking at how to Market the school, all the other martial arts schools tend to do the non-contact or Ippon Kumite WKA stuff so I think I will Market it as a Full Contact Karate School, Only thing is getting students to compete in interclubs and competitions, I'm doing the Scottish open "hopefully" Feb 2013
Its good to read through old posts
