At Premier Martial Arts and Fitness Academy we believe strongly in developing students to be leaders. Students at Premier Martial Arts and Fitness have a unique opportunity to take their martial arts training to a new level through participating in our Leadership Program. This program is a pathway for students who would like to work towards becoming an assistant instructor.
Through the Leadership Program, students will gain valuable experience helping in classes. Leadership Team members commit to helping out in one class per week, as well to being a role model for other students in their training. They are given regular training to develop their abilities as a leader. This training will be delivered through monthly training sessions, and also through our Leadership Seminars. There is a special Leadership training session on the first Saturday of every month at 11.45am. Attendance at these sessions is compulsory unless you have given prior notice of being unable to attend.
Every year there will be three Leadership Seminars – usually following the Junior / Teen / Adult gradings. All Leadership members are expected to attend every seminar. Students who successfully complete all levels of the Instructor Seminars will become eligible to become assistant instructors, and there is the possibility that this may lead to a part-time job or even a career. If you would like to become involved in this program, talk to your instructor ASAP.
