A martial arts instructor is probably one of the last people someone would want to rob. These people are trained fighters that have mastered martial arts after years of training. Besides being a mugger's worst nightmare, martial arts instructors train students in their martial arts discipline.
Martial arts instructors can specialize in a variety of martial arts, from Western disciplines like MMA to Eastern forms such as Kung Fu. Martial arts instructors work with students of all ages and teach them the techniques of their martial art and help them improve their physical conditioning. Besides physical skills, martial arts instructors also help their students hone their minds by developing skills such as focus and discipline.
The skills needed to become a martial arts instructor do not come with a bachelor's degree, although some instructors may get a degree in business if they want to open their own dojo. Instead, they hone their discipline on the mat or in the dojo by studying with masters. They often need a certification from the national association for their martial art saying that they are experienced enough to teach before instructing others.
