As times change, it is important to recognize that what once worked in the “good ‘ol days” isn’t what works today. As with any growing industry, the leaders must adapt and learn from new science and new technology for one main reason (in my opinion).
To learn, innovate, and apply so that we may pass on the proven benefits to our customers, students, and YOU!
One way that Glens Falls Karate Academy is able to do so is through the use of our Pre-Evaluations! This 15 minute evaluation that each student receives before jumping into our group classes is one of our most powerful tools! But, how?
Easy. Everyone has heard that “knowledge is power”. Our Age-Specific Pre-Evaluations are meant to help us get to know each individual prospective student. Our staff wants to take the time to peel back the layers and learn what makes each student special and what your needs are through our programs. We understand that not only is each student different, they differ widely physically, intellectually, emotionally, and socially.
During each Pre-Evaluation our instructors are constantly evaluating the strengths, challenges, and interests of each prospective student. With this knowledge, we now understand how to highlight their strengths as well as build up their weaker points and keep up their motivation.
Another benefit of our Pre-Evaluation process lies in being able to better determine which atmosphere at our school will best suit a child’s stage of development, which can range from a private lesson basis, group classes, or even accelerating them to the next age-group. With this knowledge, we are able to make an educated decision as to a training regimen that will keep each future black belt motivated and, more importantly, progressing while having fun!
This service is always FREE at Glens Falls Karate Academy and allows our instructors to create that all important bond with a new student, so that starting a new activity is no longer intimidating! They actually enter the class already having a friend!
Our job as instructors and mentors often extends beyond simply teaching martial arts. I routinely find post after post in the leading martial arts forums about how instructors go above and beyond to find the best ways to teach, guide, and foster the talent and morals of our youth! It is an honor to be at the forefront of this movement in our industry, and our Pre-Evaluations are our first step to helping each prospective student become a better version of themselves!
