AMAI Adult Leadership Program – School Owner Overview

Purpose:  To educate people in the area of leadership and martial arts instruction.  To build confidence in individuals so that they can reach their life goals and individual potential.

Vision:  Provide materials for school owners to teach sound leadership and instruction techniques to their students and to assist them in building a strong and competent instructional staff in their own schools.  To encourage and equip individuals in opening their own AMAI schools.


In your local leadership class:

Each AMAI school owner should receive the leadership programs in their manuals along with class planners for each.  This information is for you to teach from each week in your adult leadership classes.  That way, when your students attend an AMAI certification clinic or camp, they will be well prepared.  Please begin teaching this material as soon as possible.

At an AMAI certification seminar:

Seminars will be held in locations that are convenient for as many people to come to as possible.  Students can move through the seminars and level up from the blue collar to the red collar to the red/black collar. Moving from red/black to solid black may only occur at a certification camp.  A seminar last approximately 6-8 hours and a camp will last 3 days and two nights.  There is not a written test for the black collar certification.  This will be primarily a physical knowledge and teaching skills test based on the student’s previous training.  The concept is that once you have gone through both seminars, you will have the information to complete your instructor certification.
