Choosing the right Karate School is not just about location. In the KARATE business, not all schools are created equal. KARATE instructors generally do not have to answer to a state agency or have specific training, but schools belonging to nationally and internationally recognized organizations—such as the American Taekwondo Association (ATA)—require their Karate instructors to become certified in a rigorous curriculum prior to owning or operating a martial arts school. These certified instructors must keep their national certifications and qualifications up to date.

  • Here’s a checklist to go over when searching for the right Karate school.
  • Are the school’s CPR certificates up-to-date?
  • Is the school an active member of a nationally or internationally recognized association, such as the ATA?
  • Does the school have a class management skills certification and a physical skills certification?

Even after checking these things, it’s a good idea to have a state and federal background check done. Not knowing the history of the business and its instructors is scary.
