[text_block style=”style_1.png” align=”left” font_size=”17″ font_color=”%23fcfcfc” bottom_padding=”30″ line_height=”27″]Where do we get these awesome team members? Easy. We “grow” them ourselves! Each “Duane Brumitt’s Tri-Star Martial Arts” teacher began first as a White Belt beginning student right here in our school.
  • As their Martial Art skills progressed, each prospective teacher began a Leadership Training program conducted personally by myself.
  • Then, they moved forward into a “Teaching Internship” program, where they received hands on experience in teaching the “Duane Brumitt’s Tri-Star Martial Arts Academy” principles.
  • Only after a long (and challenging) internship were they considered for full time or part time employment at “Duane Brumitt’s Tri-Star Martial Arts Academy”.

You may not have known this, but the teachers at most Martial Art schools are people who teach the Martial Arts as a hobby. They work a full-time job in another profession, and teach Martial Arts in their spare time.
Not so with the “Duane Brumitt’s Tri-Star Martial Arts Academy” teaching staff. There is one full-time (besides myself), professional teacher and seven part time.
I know you will enjoy meeting:[/text_block]
