Introduction Class Planner
Intro sessions are one of the most important classes held at a martial arts business. These classes are often one-on-one or small group sessions that are used to introduce new students to the martial arts and convince them to sign up for your program. This playlist provides a skeleton class planner including an engaging warm up, fun punching drill, a basic kick, some self-defense, and a fun game to cap it all off. You should include some nuances of your style such as respect positions and stance techniques as well.
