Meridian Kung Fu (UK) Instructor programme
The Instructor Programme is a steppingstone process to becoming a Meridian Kung Fu Instructor and eventually running/owning your own branch.
All our Instructors follow a stringent and rigorous training programme that offers the opportunity of a complete career change or a direction to aim for which is far different to any other available. Participants must be totally committed to the teaching of our beautiful martial art, be of an outstanding level and have burning desire to educate and enhance the lives of those they teach.
Only exemplary students are considered and must initially meet the following criteria:
- Age 16+ years
- Elite Programme Member
- Exceptional attendance record
The Instructor programme has 6 Levels of progression that are taught to recruits. All 6 must be competently achieved to obtain Probationary Instructor level. Coaching/management skills are taught in monthly 2 hour seminars at HQ under the guidance of experienced Instructor and business mentor Sifu Steve Carpenter. These sessions will be coupled with hands on training in actual classes once a week to develop the high level of skill required to become a Meridian Kung Fu (UK) Coach.
There is NO CHARGE for this course and the incredible opportunity to train as qualified Meridian Kung Fu (UK) Coach, but we accept a limited amount of new recruits each year and strict guidelines must be adhered to throughout the 4 year programme.
