Edinburgh, United Kingdom., January 27, 2014 - (PressReleasePoint) -

Are you looking for an exciting new challenge in 2014?  Get on board the booming children’s activity sector with a Kung Fu Schools franchise which is being backed by celebrity, singer and martial arts enthusiast Peter Andre.
No previous martial arts experience is required, just a passion for working with children, a capacity for hard work and a desire to build a successful business.
Kung Fu Schools has been successfully operating a number of full-time schools in the South East of England since 2007 training thousands of adults and children. It is now recognised as one of the leading Martial Arts Institutes in the UK and has been officially endorsed by the Chinese Government, which sends its Chinese Kung Fu instructors to the school to learn how to teach Western students.
The franchise business focuses on training and coaching classes for children aged 4 to 12 and will enable franchise owners to establish and develop their own local Kung Fu Schools. The business founders Paul Hawkes and Alan Paterson have over 32 years’ experience of teaching and coaching between them having spent many years training with the world’s leading martial arts experts. Peter Andre and his children have trained with Kung Fu Schools over the past two years and was delighted to be invited to become a partner in the business alongside Paul and Alan.
Franchise owners will receive absolutely everything they need to set up and successfully operate their own Kung Fu School. The franchise package includes comprehensive training in Kung Fu from the school’s expert team of instructors, operations manuals, equipment kit, marketing/advertising and business development support. Franchises will also have specialised software to maintain a member database, take bookings and collect fees. In addition, Peter Andre will help franchise owners by promoting the brand nationally through traditional media, social media, videos and making personal appearances at a select number of schools.
Managing director of Kung Fu Schools Paul Hawkes said: “We have built Kung Fu Schools up to be one of the UK’s leading martial arts institutes and a highly successful business. We were looking to expand the company and franchising seemed the natural route to do this. We want to share our passion for helping children improve their lives through Kung Fu and help others build a profitable, enjoyable and fulfilling business.”
He added: “There is a widely held belief that Kung Fu is about aggression and fighting. Nothing could be further from the truth. Martial arts should solely be used for self-defence; in fact we do not allow children to spar in our schools and we stress that the skills learned should not be used for fighting and not awarding points for striking another child in other forms of martial arts. Moreover, we believe children absorb valuable traits from learning Kung Fu such as improved confidence, greater self-esteem and more respect for others. We are delighted that Peter Andre has joined us in the venture both as a friend and business associate as he shares our values and passion for the martial arts.”
Kung Fu Schools franchise in Sutton, Keith Monk states “I started with no students and canvassed the area for two weeks before I launched.  Soon the sizes of the classes began to grow, mainly through word of mouth.  From those early beginnings with a few students I now have a team of people who I train and develop and I have attracted nearly 300 students in under four years attracting six figure revenues.  
The support from Kung Fu Schools has been amazing.  They are constantly providing training, advice and marketing help.  The news that Peter Andre has recently joined the business as a partner can only raise the profile even further.”
