The Shaolin Institute, working together with the Shaolin Chan Foundation, will host its first conference geared toward helping Chinese Martial Arts (CMA) Schools around the globe to raise their teaching standards and values by moving from a teaching model of ‘master-based’ values to one of ‘student-based’ values, improving teaching service and the students’ learning experience.
The Chinese Martial Arts Teaching Service Standardization Conference will be held at the Shaolin Institute at 4350 Peachtree Industrial Blvd., Studio 500 A, Norcross, GA, on February 22, 2015 and will discuss (1) why CMA instructors worldwide are paid salaries and wages that are low in comparison to other education services, (2) what is lacking in CMA services and (3) solutions to raise the pay of CMA instructors with a commensurate improvement in teaching and managing services.
The main topic of discussion will be the need to match the high expectations of Traditional CMA students with a high level of teaching service and provision of a remarkable learning experience to meet modern high-stress lifestyle needs. “With the advanced skills of CMA instructors to provide these valuable services, they should be able to enjoy higher compensation,” expressed a conference coordinator.
CMA cannot be taught simply as the art of self-defense as it includes many more valuable levels of instruction, including mind-body discipline and character training. “CMA schools must embrace the students’ value-based experience along with the drive for a ‘warrior character’ and honor,” said the Head Master of the conference.
“With generations of experience in translating the life values taught by the great ancient Chinese arts and minds, here in the U.S., the Shaolin Institute is an established cultural, health-wellness and martial arts institute focusing on high-consciousness communication, personal health, safety education and mind-body training. “The Institute recognizes the true value of its instructors in providing a true experience of ancient Chinese Martial Arts and is currently paving the way for all Chinese Martial Arts schools worldwide to pay instructors between $25,000 to $50,000/year in salaries and wages,” stated a conference assistant director.
“If the main focus of the Institute is the health and happiness of each individual who is willing to travel on that high-consciousness health path, preserving thousands of years of wisdom of China and of the Universe, there should be generations of sufficient income to pay those valuable staff members for their services,” commented the Conference Coordinator.
The Institute is currently in a period of expansion and is creating more campuses in the U.S. and around the world.
