[PODCAST] Why Your Martial Arts School Needs A Kids Program w/Guest: UFC Fighter Tim Credeur


Tim “Crazy” Credeur is a former UFC fighter and owner of Gladiators Academy in Breaux Bridge, Louisiana. Tim’s school is one of the most well-respected MMA schools in the country. His philosophy on running an MMA school is based on being inclusive, creating an amazing first impression, and more recently, having a very strong kids program.

Tim used to think that having a kids program was more trouble that it's worth. But that all changed. In fact, Tim's favorite part about his academy today is the opportunity to teach kids. 

Want to hear what changed his mind?
