Celebrity, musician and martial arts enthusiast Peter Andre is to launch Kung Fu Schools – an exciting new franchise business – on Friday 15th  November.   Peter, a partner in the business, will be joined by the company founders Paul Hawkes and Alan Paterson to host a display of children’s Kung Fu skills which has made the schools such a success.  The Mayors of Crawley and Croydon and MPs for Croydon and Sutton as well as representatives from the Confucius Institute will also be there to celebrate the launch.

Kung Fu Schools – Background

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 one of the leading Martial Arts Institute 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 will focus 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.

No previous martial arts experience is necessary as the company will teach franchise owners everything they need to know.  The Kung Fu Schools franchise package has everything you need to successfully set up and operate your school including training materials, operations manual, equipment kit, merchandising, marketing/advertising materials plus ongoing support from the head office team.  In addition, franchisees are given a specialised  member database and booking software system.  Peter Andre will also be helping to support the franchise through motivational sessions and promotion via his social media presence (currently he has 4m followers).

The franchise fee is from £10,995 plus VAT and working capital will be required to grow and develop the business.  Potential franchisees will be required to undergo a CRB check.
