What training will I receive?
Do I have to know martial arts?
You do not have to have martial arts experience to own an Amerikick. We simply ask that you have a passion for community involvement, character development and making your territory a better place. For non-martial artists, we use the analogy of a professional football team where the franchise owner searches for the franchise QB. Although each owner is responsible to staff their location, Amerikick is hands-on in the process. Let's find the right candidate, let Amerikick train them and implement them as a teacher at the school.
The initial investment to the Amerikick brand is $39,500 with an ongoing royalty of 6.5%. The total investment to get started ranges from $79,000 - $99,000. We include working capital in the initial investment as a way to communicate our commitment to your success. Our goal is to find the the most equitable solution: location, build-out, demographic, mapping and overhead. We do this so that we can make you profitable as quickly as possible.
