Working for CKF
If you would like to join our Kids/Youth Instructor team as either a volunteer or a part-time staff member then please get in touch.
We are looking for people with a passion for education, community and fun! Ideally you would also have experience in working with children and a background in movement (i.e. martial arts, dance, yoga etc.)
Martial Arts experience is obviously desirable, however not essential in some of our younger classes.
The most important qualities we are looking for in our Instructors is positivity, enthusiasm and a willingness to grow and learn, as we believe that with these anything is possible! Role modelling the character traits we want to teach is vital for optimising the chances of our students learning the life skills we hope to nurture in them. "Do what I say not what I do," has no place in our classes. We want our instructors to embody the concept of personal development and enjoy change and growth, as we believe these skills are what our students need to learn more than almost anything else.
Regardless of whether you have a background in Martial Arts or not we will provide initial and on-going training to make sure that you always feel confident and well prepared to be able to teach or assist in our classes.
All of our Amazing Kids Instructors at Instructor Training in December 2014...
Some of our Kids and Youth Instructors who started as students in our Kids classes...
"Seeing the spark when someone you are teaching gets the idea/technique."
"Flexibility and scope for development of myself and my responsibilities."
"Getting to do work that matters, with people I respect and like."
"Learning new things and being part of a creative, passionate, dedicated group of people. It never ceases to impress me how much everyone really believes in the Kung Fu values."
"I have received more support in the few months I've been working here than in years working for other employers!"
