Hey guys, I decided to put an ad on craigslist for 1 on 1 coaching services.
I don’t think TMuscle would even allow me to link directly to it but this is what it says, looking for feedback about the wording, the ad, the cost. Feedback would be appreciated:
Before even beginning let’s talk experience and credentials.
I am testing for my 3rd degree this Spring.
I am Kukkiwon and WTF Certified. Thats the Organization that puts on events such as the Olympics and the Taekwondo World Championship.
I coached the national team of Samoa for 2 years. Among my success I had 3 students attend the World Championship. I also had color belt student attend national tournaments in Australia and win multiple gold medals.
I am now coaching part-time locally in Orlando.
I am Adult CPR / Child CPR / AED Certified by the American Red Cross of Central Florida.
No other coach in Orlando has Kukkiwon or WTF Certification, I’ve checked. Most schools will advertise “Karate” when in fact they are teaching you generic movements that won’t get you anywhere in competition.
If you’re interested in training my specialty is Olympic style Taekwondo, both sparring and poomsae (form).
What is Form? Well, if you want to compete in International tournaments you have to be a Black Belt. To test for Black belt there are requirements, namely knowledge of the Poomsae. I know all of them up through 4th Dan. I learned them from Korean masters and grandmasters.
Does having true martial arts experience excite you? Are you interested in getting to tournaments? Great!
Are you a Mixed Martial Artist looking for inexpensive one on one coaching that doesn’t require membership fees? I can work with your striking abilities and some grappling abilities in a way no other will teach you here in the Orlando metro. I’ve looked around and most MMA schools are run by some guy that wears Tapout and claims to know Muay Thai. What credentials does he actually have as a coach or fighter?
Whether you’ve already got some McDojo training but want the real deal or are just starting out this could be right for you.
Price will vary depending on location and how many sessions a month you’d like. To get you interested I’ll give you 1 free 2 hour training session. This is a limited offer that I’ll try to give the first 4 people to reply to this ad.
$10/hr is the base price. Lower prices if you schedule a few sessions at a time, a small additional fee if you want me to meet you someplace more than 8 miles away from my residency.
A note to parents:
I can, and do work with young children. This should not be considered unless your child is serious about their martial arts. I work with a few afterschool programs as well, they are great for children that want to do something active and have fun. Once they get serious and interested in competing then you can look me up if you want your child to get more 1 on 1 training in a focused environment.
Look forward to hearing from you!
