Sports Related Biz / Sports Instruction; Educational/School; Fitness / Fitness Center
This business is a turn-key business opportunity that is family owned and supported. Although a Martial Arts background would be a plus, it is not required to take advantage of this excellent opportunity. If you have no related experience, the seller has indicated anyone trainable, athletic, or that has a sports background can be trained in 60 to 90 days (transition period) to be successful and feel comfortable owning and operating the business. All the required information, including marketing materials, website, and detailed programs needed, are available as well as the entire operational systems. Also, purchasing this business provides the buyer with a stable, experienced, and reliable staff of part-time employees. Although the business was impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic like most businesses, the revenue levels have certainly rebounded rapidly in 2021. The martial arts segment of the business is currently back to approximately 75% of its pre-pandemic level. That number will continue to rise as the amount of prospective student inquiries has returned to normal levels. The 2021 summer camp season has completely sold out making it the largest number of attendees ever. The primary mission of the business is to teach youth students, aged 3 – 9 years old, positive life skills that will help them become successful adults. The skills (concepts) including discipline, control, focus, teamwork, perseverance, and courage are taught in a fun and entertaining way using “edutainment”. The teaching strategy of edutainment allows the business's instructors to teach children in a way that is fun, creative, and most importantly, successful. The positive life skills developed through martial arts training also positively impact the lives of the business's teen and adult students. All instruction is age-appropriate and age-specific. The programs are divided by age-group (3 & 4 years old, 5 & 6 years old, 7 to 9 years old, 10 to 12 years old, and 13 years and older). Another advantage separating this business from its competition is the use of three late model (2018, 2019, 2020) multi-function school activity buses to transport the children in its after school and summer camp programs. Built to the same rigid specifications as a school bus, these vehicles are the safest transportation available for school aged children. These buses have each been driven less than 5,000 miles and are quite the eye-catcher with their distinctive wraps. They are highly effective billboards on wheels.
The business was founded in 1998 by the current owner who is looking to retire. The original location is one of the operating locations today. In 2009, the owner took advantage of an opportunity to expand into another market. It is this location where the After School and Summer Camp programs were implemented. They have since become hallmark programs that differentiate the business from most other Martial Arts Instructional businesses. Essentially, the business has carved out a unique niche in the industry by providing services that are in high demand and very favorable for both young students and their parents.
