College vs. Martial Arts


What you gonna do?

When I speak with members of my staff, I try to remind them of how far martial arts has come in the last 40 years and the last 10 in particular.

I tell them that there has never been a better time to become a professional Martial Artist.

There are school managers making over a $100,000 a year.

And there are school owners making over a million dollars a year.

But…they need a “degree,” which is the Black Belt training a student gets at a professional martial arts school.

It takes time, effort and money to become a Martial Arts professional, but compared to the time, effort and money of a more traditional college degree, martial arts has become a real option as a career path.

Take a look below at the cost of education at an Ivy League school compared to martial arts training.

The average cost of a Black Belt training course is beteween $5,000 to $10,000.


Personally, I (like a lot of Black Belts of my era) lived at my school while surviving on pennies to be a martial artist, and were happy to do it.

But it’s a new day and an exciting day, especially if you’re thinking about becoming an Martial Arts professional.
