UK INSTRUCTOR CONFERENCE
A couple of weekends ago, James and I traveled to Gracie Jiu Jitsu Watford for a gathering of certified instructors from across the UK and Europe.
Beyond Jiu Jitsu technique, the purpose of this conference was business discussion.
I've attended numerous martial arts business meetings that mostly revolve around numbers, metrics, Facebook ads, and so on, all of which are important for a business.
However, what's fantastic is that our 'business talk' mainly focuses on cultivating an exceptional culture and offering the best experience to our members. The passion for teaching Jiu Jitsu in that room was remarkable!
I am extremely proud to be a part of this team and if you've ever contemplated becoming a certified instructor, I encourage you to come and speak to me about it.
GRACIE GAME DAY
Quick reminder that Gracie Game Day is this Saturday (15th July) from 10AM-11AM.
Please wear uniform and bring the signed game day chart (downloadable here).
