Seminar Puerto Rico April 26th 2008


Master K.O. Spillmann, 8th Dan Black Belt has given dozens of seminars for self defense and business. Master Spillmann recently had another electrifying seminar, this time in beautiful Puerto Rico. The seminar was hosted on April 26th, 2008 by Master Wilfredo Sellas of Sellas Martial Arts and Master Miguel Lind of WWTHF in Puerto Rico

It was truly an honor and learning experience for many of Puerto Rico’s top Masters and Instructors.  They had an opportunity to learn from one of the top leaders in the martial arts world on how to operate a professional martial arts academy. Many attendees gained the inside secrets required to achieve financial freedom without compromising top instruction.

Grandmaster Spillmann’s seminar in Puerto Rico not only covered the business aspects, it also covered class organization, trial lessons, student retention, advertising, staffing, phone sales, sales psychology, training the customers, teaching principals, placing a value on benefits, and the positive caring philosophy needed to elevate martial arts as a respected career.

All attending the seminar received Grandmaster Spillmann’s business book (The TaeKwonDo Business Manual – How to run a professional martial arts academy) which has changed many school owners lives.
The masters not only were excited and motivated by Master Spillmann’s shared knowledge, they were impressed with Master Spillmann’s love and dedication for TaeKwonDo and  improving Masters’, Instructors’ and students’ lives.
The masters in Puerto Rico have invited Master Spillmann to return next year for him to see the positive changes and host an even bigger seminar.
