    If he's teaching W.T.F TKD and he wants to promote to 1st dan he needs to be 4th dan to follow Kukkiwon's rules. (which he doesn't have to do if he doesn't want to)

    As to the original question, find a coach! You don't have to agree with them 100%, but the Keith Hafners, Stephen Olivers, Dave Kovars of the world can teach you a ton about martial arts business, marketing and management.

      Math 101

      From what I am seeing so many martial arts business fail because of financial problems. You have to remember, your rent is going to be astronomical, utilities are on the rise, water bill, Instructor salaries, deliquent tuitions...............It's a big risk, that's why so many are starting schools out of their home. If you could rent space from your Church that would be ideal.

      Most successful schools, sad to say, are McDojos with a high number of students especially kids, on ACH contracts.

              How do I get started?
              should I teach out of a fitness center to get students of my own?
              what is the best way to attract students?
