Being a small business means that we are not only providing classes, but we are our own marketing team, accounting, and operations team all rolled into one. When we are not in classes, we are working hard to promote our workshops, classes, and school; yet, we always keep the important thing in mind: our students.
Supporting small businesses is easy and ensures that you can continue enjoying our services for years to come. These are the ways we can use your support.
Tell your friends!
If any of your friends are interested, bring them to a class. Many individuals find it easier to commit to doing something new if they have a buddy with them. Workshops are great ways to introduce people to kickboxing or self-defense. If a group of friends have said they feel unsafe or are nervous about neighborhood safety, get them together to create your own workshop. We can also host birthday parties, bachelorette parties, and other gatherings.
Show off your skills!
Take videos and pictures of yourself in class. Post them and tag Mind Body Defense on your favorite social media while checking in. Instagram and Twitter: @MindBodyDefense Facebook: @MindBodyDefense1 Also, use our favorite hashtags: #MindBodyDefenseFun (for those random class moments that make you laugh) #MindBodyDefenseFinal (for final drills)
Leave us reviews!
Your words mean so much to us. We can’t tell you how often new students come in saying they were given courage to try kickboxing due to the reviews that you left. We have profiles on Google, Yelp!, and Facebook. Also, if you send us your story of why you started kickboxing or picked Mind Body Defense, then we can use it for our marketing and social media campaigns.
Request a workshop!
We can create self-defense workshops for just about any setting. We have developed workshops for law offices, schools, apartment and management companies, hotels, and non-profits. If you know of anyone looking to host a self-defense workshop or you want to request one at your apartment building, place of work, or school, we have proposal templates that you can send to your point of contact.
Our students make us who we are. Our success does not come with how much we make or how big we get. Our success comes with empowering each individual who walks in our doors, with seeing each individual realize their strengths and power, with each individual connecting with those around them in class and without.
As we grow, our community thrives. As we grow, we can offer more classes and specialized workshops. As we grow, we can meet more of your needs. Thank you for the past two and a half years. We look forward to being there with you as you grow!
