The Priceless Martial Arts Program
After training in the martial arts for the past 29 years, and personally experiencing all of the life altering changes the martial arts provides, I know without a shadow of a doubt that training in the martial arts is literally PRICELESS.
If you told me right now that you’d deposit 30 million dollars into my bank account in exchange for everything that I have learned and everything that I have become due to experiencing a martial arts lifestyle, I’d say absolutely, positively, NO WAY!
We hear time and time again from parents that Martial Arts Programs are “too expensive” compared to other sports or that they just “can’t afford it.” On average, our training programs here at PAMA are about $130 per month depending on commitment made. That’s an investment of about $1,560 per year. And I say investment, because that’s what training in the martial arts is – it’s an investment on the ability to reach your human potential.
As a parent, let me ask you this:
How much would you pay per month for your child to have their very own Personal Trainer, who meets with them 2-3 times per week, helps them with making good nutritional choices, shows them how fitness can be fun, and how maintaining a healthy lifestyle is cool?
$130 per month? $250 per month?
Now let me ask you this, how much would you pay for your child to have their very own Motivational Mentor, like Tony Robbins? Someone who wakes them up with determination to be the best they can be. Someone who mentors them and helps them to make the best decisions. Someone who helps to instill confidence and self respect. Someone who teaches them how to set goals, accomplish those goals, and then set more. This person would instill all of the Life Skills that a child would need to be successful in life.
$300 per month? $400 per month? (Me personally, I would pay thousands!)
Now how much would you pay for your child to be surrounded by other like minded children? We all know that your environment and the people you choose to be around greatly effects who you are and how you act. So imagine if your child was constantly surrounded by other children who were on the same path to greatness as them. Would you rest easier at night knowing that your child’s friends are going to help shape who they become in a positive manner? What’s that worth to you?
Now how much would you pay for your child to have their very own Body Guard everywhere they went? Imagine your child walking to the bus stop, and someone offers them a cigarette – the body guard would say, “No way, we don’t do that!”. Or imagine them walking home from school, and a bully approaches and pushes your child down on the ground, and the bodyguard easily controls the situation by taking that bully down and pressuring them into submission, keeping your child safe from harm.
How much would you pay for that? A personal body guard for the most prized possession in your life? I think the answer is…….A LOT.
Well all of these things listed above is what your child will get when you sign them up in the Martial Arts. They receive a Personal Trainer, they receive a Motivational Mentor, they are surrounded by greatness, and they become THEIR VERY OWN BODYGUARD!!
Now knowing this, does that $130 investment per month seem worth it?!
Of course it does.
It seems pretty…priceless. 😉
