Hello friends! Haven't been on the forums for awhile due to grad school, military stuff, and actual practicing martial arts. However, I have an ethical dilemma on which I would like the opinions of seasoned martial artists. To briefly reiterate my background: - Two years of Hakkoryu Jiu Jitsu in high school - Seven years of Aikido as my location allowed (bounced around a lot on active duty) - Two years BJJ, not very good, but have used it in an actual self-defense situation to great effect - Two years between Shorin-Ryu and Chito-Ryu Karate - Six months of American Kenpo Karate - Three months Krav Maga - Three months Tang Soo Do -Certified level-one instructor of MACP (Modern Army Combatives Program) - No dan/black belt rank in any of the above, though I'm approaching it in Aikido Earlier this year I was hired by my local YMCA to teach a self-defense class. As the YMCA did not have a pre-existing curriculum, I was given free-reign to build my own from the ground up. I did so, and I received very positive feedback. The YMCA wanted me to teach another session of my class, but military duties are going to conflict with that. As such, they are looking at replacing me. With that in mind, I'm considering trying to start my own business teaching my own, personal mix of techniques gleaned from all of the above over the years. My question to you good people is, knowing my time/level of training, and knowing that I DO NOT have a black belt in any single martial art, would you think it reasonable for me to consider teaching as a side-job?
