Not Your Average Martial Arts Studio
We were excited to learn all about DC Aikido Martial Arts and Kids Karate and how they have gotten where they are today, so we sat down with Ryan Bausch.
The first thing we wanted to know was what it is that makes DC Aikido Martial Arts and Kids Karate stand apart from its competitors. He told us about the programs they offer for both kids and adults, and about the benefits of each program. He said:
“For our kid’s program, we are a full-time, professional martial arts school that specializes in teaching ages three through high school. We will help them gain the skills needed to be confident in what they are facing, day in and day out. For adults, we have a great community. Not every school has that. Everyone helps each other learn and grow, and that is what sets us apart.”
When we asked him about the DC Aikido Martial Arts and Kids Karate business mission, he told us:
“We are here to be part of the community, improve the youth, and be a positive impact.”
Building Success, Online and Off
DC Aikido Martial Arts and Kids Karate has earned a fantastic reputation, so we asked Ryan how they have managed to grow their business and get such great reviews. He told us that, for the most part, the reviews are organic, but that they will occasionally ask their clients for feedback.
In addition to building the kind of online reputation that any small business would envy, DC Aikido Martial Arts and Kids Karate has spread the word about who they are and what they do by keeping their website updated and through word of mouth. They also love it when they get invited to participate in special events at local schools.
There are many businesses out there that are looking to build as impressive a reputation as DC Aikido Martial Arts and Kids Karate has managed to. We asked if Ryan could share any expert advice with these companies. Here’s what he had to say:
“Be very intentional about what you are doing and about your relationship with the client. When you are passionate about what you are doing, people can tell.”
Congratulations to DC Aikido Martial Arts and Kids Karate for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and special thanks to Ryan for taking the time to speak with us!
