If you find that training is getting kind of boring and routine to your students or clients and you have a large number
of clients that are pressed for time because of school or work. Think of trying Development Competitions to help them achieve
This will not be a internal tournament for everyone but a tournament or competition for the people who have no time for
competition. For example, Mary and Sue may be promising boxing or mixed martial arts students. They both dream of competing
but children, school and work takes up all of their time. They just have enough time to come in and learn their discipline
from you, the instructor.
If they attend three times a week, they could spend one of those days competing against their fellow classmates who are
in the same bind. The competitions can last a few weeks or a the full term of the billing session depending on the number
of participants and what they are learning in the training.
You will have to create the criteria and the rules.
For example, the students will learn how to throw a hook or how to escape a choke hold. In the competition, they will just
be limited to only the techniques they have learned leading up to that day. The competitors will have to be evenly matched
in their knowledge. You and the instructors will judge on who had won the competition for that day based on performance. You
can mark down the leader for that week or you can have a winner for the week taking home a medal or trophy.
Post on your bulletin board who is leading and you can have the grand competition at the end of the billing term. There
is a lot of ways the Development Competition can be operated. It all up to your imagination but the benefits are that you
retain these busy students. They continue to come and be thrilled with competition and enlightenment. They get to show their
stuff in front of friends, family and classmates. But you may want to charge them a little extra fee, which helps your business.
Take it from me, it is a win-win situation for all!
