Many people make the mistake of assuming that just because someone is good at martial arts, they will also be good at teaching. KAT offers a rigorous instructor training program that includes CPR/First Aid, Anatomy and Physiology, injury prevention, public speaking, learning styles, working with ADHD and learning disibilities, motivational skills, and more. The course includes coursework, practical experience, correcting the “Misadventures of Master Malo” and a 3 hour written test. In addition, there are minimum age and belt requirements for all certified instructors.
All our instructors must pass a minimum fitness test from any branch of the US Military.
