We have been using the Black Belt Excellence system in our three schools for more than a decade. It offers a great continuity from the instructors on the floor, to the student, and to the parents. And it is a positive feedback system that supports our ability to make a big impact on the people we teach in multiple aspects of their lives. The lessons relate to the students' both in and out of the martial arts school. The reward system is top notch. Our students look forward to the start of the month (beginning a new theme) and the end of the month (receiving the reward). The well designed messages that are a part of the program really make a positive difference to retention. We love the BBE System.
Having Mat Chats are a very important part of our classes. Not only does it better our students, but the parents love it and it adds huge value. Using the sheets and reward system is something that our students love doing and is a great reminder of the words of the cycle. Thank you GM Silva and Get Students for making it so easy to share our love for the martial arts.
I have been using the Black Belt Excellence system in my teaching, as I learned it from Grand Master Greg Silva, for over 15 years. It was great then and it is great now. The only difference is that it is so easy to duplicate now! The system of worksheets, lessons and cool rewards that Get Students has created is awesome! I highly recommend this system for everyone who teaches kids and believes that what we do is about more than just kicking and punching.
If anyone is not doing this system, it is a must do. It is awesome. I have teens and kids.. you heard me right - teens - wearing their bands, not one of them but all of them. Some kids have many, many of our bands on their arms. Kids are asking what the next theme is and color of the band. This has created a positive momentum for the Black Belt Excellence sheet lessons and stripes.. Like I said - a must do!
Many schools claim they teach life skills along with physical skills but often lack the system. The Black Belt Excellence system is an amazing way to duplicate teaching benefits from teacher to teacher and class to class. The students benefit from the lessons, parents see results and your school becomes a true balanced martial arts facility.
This program is a must have in your school!!! It sells our program before our intros ever walk onto the mat. The parents in our school start asking for the sheets the week before the next month is even here. They completely see and believe in the power of the System. DON'T WAIT TO IMPLEMENT IT! DO IT NOW!!!!!
These are a must have for a successful, benefit driven Martial Arts studio!! Kids look forward each month to earning the reward and parents love the way it drives home the message of the month. Take your studio to the next level and stand above the competition with these Black Belt Excellence news sheets.
