Ethan Willis in the News! E-strengths assessment helps others and

I loved James post : wrote “…A martial arts school can be an expensive new business venture to set in motion. However, the average cost now paid by a student per year for martial arts training is in excess of $600. Providing the business could train 200 students per year, this would result in revenues exceeding $120,000, based on an average of $600 per year per student. Needless to say, this type of specialized instruction can be very financially lucrative. In addition to group training, one-on-one martial arts training is also becoming popular for the serious student who is prepared to pay $40 per hour or more for an intensive training session..” see Business Idea Center: Martial Arts

    Greetings Mr Ethan Willis,Ken Blanchard, Don Hutson
