We've provided the link below to help you find competitors in your city. After following the link, enter your city, state and zip code to get a list of karate, judo, and kung fu instruction businesses in your area.
Is the local market large enough to support another karate, judo, and kung fu instruction business? If not, you had better be sure that you are doing things much better than the competition.
Talk to People Who Are Already in the Business
After you've evaluated your local competitors, be sure to learn as much as you can from somebody who is already in the business. It's very unlikely that the local competition will talk to you. What's in it for them?
Fortunately, somebody who runs a karate, judo, and kung fu instruction business on the other side of the country may be willing to share their entrepreneurial wisdom with you, after they realize you reside far away from them and won't be stealing their local customers. In that case, the business owner may be more than happy to discuss the industry with you. Our estimate is that you may have to contact many business owners to find one who is willing to share his wisdom with you.
