Posted 24 days ago in Education
Do you enjoy working with kids?
Are you passionate about living a fit and healthy lifestyle?
Do you love seeing kids reach their peak potential?
Then you're going to thrive at Urban Martial Arts!
We're a fast-growing martial arts school in Brooklyn that offers fitness kickboxing classes for adults, a transported karate after-school program, a karate sports summer camp, and karate classes for kids.
The New York Daily News picked our karate sports summer camp as one of NYC's hottest camps, and The L Magazine named our fitness kickboxing class as one of the top 10 workouts in all of NYC!
Parents love the way our karate programs inspire their children toward excellence, and adults can hardly believe the amazing weight loss and toning results they see from our kickboxing classes.
Plus, we've been featured everywhere from Fox Business to Entrepreneur Magazine for our innovative approaches to business, marketing, and customer service!
ABOUT THIS POSITION
This is a full-time position. You would work in our after-school program and help out at the front desk a few days a week. On holidays, breaks, and over the summer, you would work full-time at our day camps. These are the approximate hours:
Mon: 12:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Tue: 12:30 pm - 6:30 pm
Wed: 12:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Thu: 2:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Sat: 9:00 am - 1:30 pm
You'll pick up our after-school students from school. You'll help with cleaning the school. You'll help market the school by distributing flyers. You'll make sure each child attends their rank's karate class each day. You'll assist with free time, during which our students have snack and do their homework. You'll build a strong rapport with the parents of our after-school students, keep them updated on their child's performance, and make sure they are happy with the service we're providing.
This is by no means a complete list of your responsibilities, but it should give you an idea of what this job entails.
We offer a benefits package including employee discounts on our classes and merchandise, health insurance, and 401K retirement plan.
WHY YOU'LL ENJOY THIS JOB
You'll be working in a fast-paced and ever-changing environment, juggling a lot of projects simultaneously, and working closely with the owners, who will have very high expectations of your performance.
It'll be intense and hard work, but you'll find it immensely rewarding.
Because unlike many other positions you're probably applying to, our business is one that has a meaningful mission and impact.
We've had children go from C students to A students using the focus skills they've learned with us. We've had adults lose 30 pounds and avoid falling victim to the diabetes and heart disease that runs in their family. We've had kids stave off attacks from bullies using the self-defense techniques we taught them. We've had adults who never worked out a day in their lives before coming to us, who have transformed into athletes who can pump out 6 to 7 kickboxing classes a week.
Simply put, we are passionate about helping people reach their peak potential in life and becoming the best versions of themselves.
By working here, you'll see for yourself the impact we have on people's lives, plus you'll know that you're contributing directly to those life transformations!

Absolutely no walk-ins, phone inquiries, or email submissions please, or you'll be immediately disqualified from consideration.
