8 Reasons Why I Chose Martial Arts As A Career

Teaching martial arts as a career was a job choice even my parents doubted.

I had a choice to make after I received my degree in Psychology from UTSA.

Go onto graduate school, or open a martial arts studio.

HERE ARE EIGHT REASONS WHY I CHOSE MARTIAL ARTS AS A CAREER.

Teaching martial arts is not easy . . .

It takes patience, perseverance, and a heart of a teacher.  Here are a few reasons why I do what I do:

  1. Change Lives – Teaching martial arts is more than kicking and punching, at least to me.  I get a chance to impact lives and truly make a difference.
  2. It is a Calling – When I see a student accomplish an impossible goal, it brings me joy!
  3. The “Ah-ha” Moment – The best moments is seeing the light go off when a student finally “gets it”.  This moment can be life-changing for the student and instructor.  
  4. Born To Do It – I cannot ignore something I was born to do and seeing others grow.
  5. Never Peak – I relish in finding unique and creative ways of pushing kids past their limits.
  6. My students depend on me – Students depend on me for support, guide, and inspire them. 
  7. Lead By Example – I model how to succeed and fail.
  8. Students Say the “funniest things” – What is the point of teaching if you are not enjoying it?
