COLUMBIA, S.C., Oct. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Retired US Army Chief Warrant Officer Dexter Kennedy has been "making people better for life" and working on his strategy to graduate tournament-level martial arts superstars to a professional best-of-the-best team championship competition for more than eight years. He is now making his National Martial Arts League (NMAL) philosophy available nationwide through franchising.
Football, amateur and professional, is perhaps the most popular spectator sport in the United States, attracting over 40 million in attendance and many more millions in television viewership each year. Imagine what would happen if every man 18+ only had to pay a registration fee to try out for an NFL team. That's the reality in the National Martial Arts League.
The NMAL provides maximum opportunity for martial artists, male and female, ages 18-50, looking to showcase their skills as well as stay in prime physical and mental condition prior to the NMAL team tryouts. Over time NMAL franchise teams can certainly emulate the success of other professional league team franchises.
For decades in America, various genres of the martial arts have languished within the limitations of their respective communities. Now, the National Martial Arts League Franchise, LLC is making a powerful move toward professionalizing the amateur martial arts tournament-level competition into a major league sport where competitors of all martial arts styles will be given an opportunity to represent their city/state team in a national championship like the Super Bowl, which is called The Kumite.
A nationwide league with the potential to expand globally can be more inclusive of martial artists than any existing martial arts platform. In addition to physical fitness and mental conditioning, the NMAL offers excellent career opportunities for coaches, referees, and front office administrative personnel. Coaches receive experience by working with competitors and preparing fight strategies while referees are presented with a challenge of officiating fast-paced, action-packed events. People involved with management aspects of the organization gain unparalleled experience and insight into the operation of a professional sports franchise. Franchisees also become more involved within their communities by providing a professional sports team, which becomes an active vehicle for recreation, community service and economic profitability.
Ranked within the top 7% of military-friendly franchises, NMAL offers U.S. veterans a 20% franchise fee discount on all new National Martial Arts League franchise offerings.
National Martial Arts League franchisees also become the owner of a solutions-based martial arts training facility, the Kumite Fightclub, which provides programs that address:
- Stress - America's #1 health problem
- Obesity - 33% of American adults are obese
- Crime - Of which 16% of US citizens will be victims
- Bullying - 90% of 4th-9th graders report being victims
