I've been trying to think up some strategies for getting some older students to start training in my dojo. The little ones are adorable but not having enough adults makes me nervous about what direction the school is going.
One thing I also noticed is that when there are a coupple adults in the class, the younger ones are usually more focused and imitate the older students good habits. When there are only little ones, one class clown can make otherwise well behaved students act out. One problem is my being broke as a joke. I'm not actually the owner but I'm one of the higher ranking instructors there. I'm trying to think of people my age who would have the time and money to start trainning there and wouldn't mind being around a lot of kids or paying $60 a month.
I was thinking about giving some free private lessons there to start some of them out with.
I can furhter elaborate of the situation if need be but I can't really think of any further relevant details right now.
Thanks in advance. I appreciate the time.
