im a career martial artist. traditional background multiple black belts that make me sound way cooler on paper. I made the switch to MMA/ BJJ and then to modern combatives ( KRAV MAGA) style. there are 3 main skills that take a long time to master. 1) martial arts techniques for yourself pressure tested, 2) Teaching the skill 3) running a business. MittMaster fills in any gaps you may have in your curriculum WE ALL HAVE GAPS! I love what i teach , im on a mission to provide the BEST instruction and techniques for the people that train with us. Mitt Masters is THE BEST I've seen (20+ years ) for teaching skills that will improve your and your students overall game. this is carefully thought out and well organized easy to follow syllabus that your students will thank you for. There is an easy barrier to entry that makes this affordable quality. I cant think of 1 reason NOT to invest.

The Mittmaster Certification course has really been a blessing to me and my Understanding to teach KB classes at our Dojo. I started kickboxing in order to get back in shape after leaving martial arts training (karate) 20 years prior. I dropped over 100 pounds in a year and eventually I began teaching kickboxing class in our dojo. I know how to work out and how to get in shape but I still needed work on training other people. The Mittmaster course really opened my eyes on how to be a better instructor and prep classes that catered to my students individual work out needs.

This program is wonderful!! Great knowledge on physical components, the break down is killer and wicked easy to grasp for faster learning. I already used much of this knowledge before getting the class cert program...but this is soooo much better and much more in depth. I love fitness and especially martial arts (I'm a sanshou martial artist and a kickboxing instructor), so this is priceless info that will give me more years of proficiency.
