Proven Marketing and Operational Systems

Martial Arts, Camp, After School, & Special Events

ABOUT INCOURAGE SYSTEMS

We are the strategy team behind InCourage Martial Arts, the studio brand that inspired the MyStudio technology platform. 

Our team is comprised of highly-skilled martial arts operators, creatives, digital strategists, marketing researchers, and professionals with business degrees from Harvard Business School and Northwestern University's Kellogg School of Management. Together, we work toward two main goals: 1) Get new members for our studios and 2) Keep existing members. There is a lot that goes on behind the scenes to achieve those goals. 

Currently each of the InCourage location is directed by an accomplished operator. The InCourage Systems team provides the operator with the strategies, plans, related materials, and support needed to run the studios. In turn, they are set up for success to fulfill their roles: execute the plans in operations and ensure the profitability of the studio. 

 

The InCourage Systems Program is a limited opportunity to gain access to the InCourage Systems team and our marketing and operating systems.

OFFERINGS YOU WILL GET ACCESS TO

Below are high-level overviews of the services we provide to our InCourage Martial Arts members. InCourage Systems Program members will gain insight into the strategies, materials, and plans associated to these programs.

 

Martial Arts (Virtual & In-Person)

Our instructors teach classes in-person and virtually. While the martial arts are core to this, the strategies used to engage and motivate students are tailored to the delivery method. The InCourage Systems team comes up with the curriculum and class agendas for our programs across our multiple locations.

 

Camps (Summer, Snow, Spring, Holiday)

Every aspect of our camps is designed to have kids play, meet new friends, socialize, sweat, and have fun while learning the mental and physical benefits of the Martial Arts. Our program has been recognized as "Best Summer Camp" by Northern Virginia Magazine for many years running. Our camps have run up to 120 students in one studio at a time, filled with well thought out activities, field trips, and themes, which are the product of nearly a year of preparation each year. For the 2020 summer camp season, our camps were 75% sold out by January 2020, across 5 locations.

 

After School Care (Virtual & In-Person)

Every day our teams transport hundreds of children from their elementary schools to our studios for an afternoon of martial arts, active games, crafts, and age-appropriate educational activities. While our students see us every day, there is always something new to look forward to as we deploy monthly themes and weekly character lessons to enrich their experience with us. During the COVID-19 shutdown of schools, we have been offering daily educational sessions with our after school students.

 

Special Events (Virtual & In-Person)

We regularly host birthday parties and parents' nights out in our studios, which are extremely popular for children in our local communities. Attendees enjoy the special activities we intricately plan out, including games to get their bodies moving and crafts to get their brains working.
