Re: Beginners Retention Rates
Great question. Since I don't actually teach, I will offer my own experience.
I didn't join, much less stay, at schools because they didn't know how to actually punch or make it look, much less be, a martial art.
I joined, and have stayed for over 11 years, in my current school because my Sensei and the people I train with help me keep it real. It seemed doable and practical since day one.
