We have been in business for 30 years www.pankrationcanada.com and over the years we’ve tried many different types of software. I must say that Kick Site is by far the best software for a mixed martial arts school to integrate into their system. Kick Site will save the school a significant amount of time and organizes your tasks and record keeping. The user friendly interface allows for anyone to be able to use the software.
We chose Kicksite for a couple specific reasons. It’s customizable to our needs. As an ATA school that teaches other programs (BJJ, Fitness Classes, Yoga, Zumba), it was important to us that we were able to create our own belt structure and have the ability to have one student in multiple programs. Kicksite made that all too easy. Also, the ability to use a tablet at our front counter for student attendance and then have automatic “miss you” emails sent out frees up time for myself and my staff to focus on better customer service. Anytime I’ve had any questions on how to use Kicksite, Melissa and the other Kicksite staff have gone above and beyond to take me from a beginner user to expert. Finally, the fact that everything is web-based allows me to keep track of what goes on in my school even when I’m not there. I have and will continue to recommend Kicksite to all of my school owner friends.
In just 2 1/2 years, our school has surged to over 230 students. Kicksite is one of the main reasons for our rapid growth and retention. Kicksite allows us to stay connected with our student body, while also giving us the tools to keep track of the overall status of the business. With only 2 full time employees, Kicksite gives us the ability to focus on teaching instead of spending time in the office doing paperwork. We have had a great relationship with the team at Kicksite. They listen to our ideas for improvement and quickly help with any questions. They care about their customers.
After trying many other programs Kick Site is the first one that actually met our needs and exceeded our expectations. It’s wonderful to look at the dashboard and get a summary of exactly what’s going on at our school on one page. If I have to look a student’s account up and I’m not at the academy, I can log in from any device that has the Internet and get the information instantly. Even when one of my staff or I have a question Melissa our customer service rep is ready to answer it and show us how to solve it. I highly recommend Kick Site for any martial arts school.
Kicksite does so much for my business I can’t imagine life without it. From student retention to memberships and automatic communications, Kicksite is the first thing I check in the morning and the last thing I look at after classes. Student Login capabilities are an amazing way for everybody on my team to keep track of their own attendance and memberships amongst other things. There’s no need to look any further. Kicksite does it all.
Changing over to Kicksite was the best decision we could have ever made. Easy setup, easy to use, easy to train, and most of all, major cost savings. Keeps us rolling instead of wasting valuable time keeping up with attendance and bookkeeping. Kicksite allows us to do what we do best without the worry.
My greatest surprise came after our schools first testing. It was convenient and professional to create testing events, invite the students and have them printed onto official ATA score sheets. I was blown away after the testing. Our school’s routine of taking each tester’s profile, updating the new rank, and changing their School Id card took 3-4 hours (200 students). That task has been reduced to less than 5 Minutes! I checked all testers in the events, unchecked the ones who did not show up and clicked “promote”….Done! Then I crafted an e-mail inserting the addresses of students who missed testing inviting them to schedule a make-up test. Never did that before. The parents loved it. I was sure I made the right decision to switch my school management to Kicksite, after this past testing I am 100%, jumping in the air, excited, sure I made the right decision. Thanks Kicksite Team for all you’ve done in the short time we’ve been with you!
I have successfully owned and operated my do-jang for nearly two decades. Throughout the years, I incorporated different organized systems to enhance our students’ experience. I always considered the systems we had in place up to date; however, some were becoming antiquated as we had become creatures of habit. In June 2013, I took the plunge and came on board with Kicksite. I have been a happy member of the Kicksite family ever since! Kicksite has provided me and my staff with additional features I was not implementing, which has modernized and professionalized my academy further. The web based interface allows me to keep a ‘pulse’ on my academy when I am out of town for competitions and seminars – be it across the state or across the world – and it better allows my staff and I the ability to provide better communication regarding each student through their individual profiles. The attendance check in feature through Kicksite has decreased check-in time for our students and has decreased labor costs for us. Additionally, the attendance reward system is a fantastic retention tool that is much more immediate and effective than we had used in the past. Further, the texting option provided by Kicksite is invaluable. These days most people do not see or check email often and may not receive timely information about events or more important announcements such as severe weather closings. The ability to text them is a huge plus! Being able to provide our students and parents with their own User Account is also something new for us. This provides additional motivation for our students and it involves the parents that we cannot get to train with their kids more profoundly – again positively impacting our retention! As well, we can offer many online resources more effectively. There are other school management companies out there that may offer similar products, but the SERVICE and the friendly staff at Kicksite are what I have been the most impressed with. The staff was able to easily transition our records to create our web-based platform. Training on Kicksite for me and my staff continues to be conducted very professionally and we can always reach someone should we have questions. In working with Kicksite staff since coming on board, it is evident that they are not only continually striving to provide an excellent product and excellent service, but they are continually looking at ways to help their clients improve their business. I am confident that we will be with Kicksite indefinitely as they continue to develop cutting edge services and technology which will enhance and grow our business! I strongly recommend them to anyone in our industry.
My name is Grandmaster Rick Hall and I have been operating my martial arts academy in Chattanooga, TN for twenty six years. During that time, I have seen the introduction of affordable computers, cellular telephones and the rise of the internet. All these technological innovations have profoundly changed the way we manage our martial arts academies. I began searching for a better, more efficient way to manage my student tracking, communication and perhaps billing. My student, Senior Master Scott Evers in Johnson City, TN recommended I try the Kicksite System that he was very happy with. From my first contact with the Kicksite Team, I was greeted with professionalism and efficiency. The team is knowledgeable and helpful. They set up my free trial and even entered in all my students and then were quick to tutor me on the workings of the system. Honestly, the system is so well laid out that I needed very little help. This system is fully customizable and is easily tailored to fit nearly any martial art or belt system. Kicksite absolutely meets my needs and gives me the ability to maximize my student tracking, communication and later if I choose, billing with my students. I have watched the continued improvements to the system as they have been added and have enjoyed the benefits they have afforded. I am very happy with Kicksite and have recommended it to my friends in the martial arts industry. I look forward to a long partnership.
Partnering with Kicksite has been a huge advantage for the Kansas Taekwondo Association. It enables our clubs to have the best in school management, billing, and student communication. Kicksite has allowed KTA school owners and instructors to focus on the important part of the martial arts… the education. I highly recommend Kicksite to any club, school or association looking to advance their student’s experience and the profitability of their business.
Kicksite has already saved me so much time. My school had grown to the point of making membership errors, but now with Kicksite everything is organized! The attendance check-in has added a great deal of professionalism to my school. Everyone loves seeing their picture when they check-in, and I don’t have to hassle with attendance cards! I have noticed that students are motivated about using their online account to check their curriculum to study, which results in student improvement!
I have been working with Kicksite for about six months now. I’ve been very pleased overall with the customer support and also the product. As of September we’ve been using the product in its entirety including billing. Kicksite has been very accommodating and making the system ready for ATA schools. For example, Kicksite has made it where you can see ATA memberships that are expiring or are already expired. They also can send automated emails as reminders to students that their ATA membership has expired or is expiring. With just that alone we have been able to collect more ATA fees than before. We have been very pleased with Kicksite and looking forward to a long relationship.
Kicksite has made a huge impact on our school in just a few short months. I am very excited about the ability to offer my students and their families training videos and documents that they can use during their at home training. My clients are excited about the amount of information at their fingertips. Most of all I have more time to devote to teaching our students and growing our student base thanks to Kicksite’s automated messaging and ease of use. Every day I am thinking of new ways to take advantage of this great program. Thanks, Kicksite.
I just wanted to let you know that this last update, allowing students to check-in more than once a day, is fantastic! This has saved my wife so much time and frustration at the front counter and now we can actually do business at the counter instead of dealing with repeat students. Also, allowing my instructors to check-in for multiple programs with the same number is awesome. It seems that every update brings something more useful. Thanks for the work you guys do and constantly trying to improve.
Kicksite is one of the easiest and most efficient martial art school management systems I have used. My staff find it easy to use and has made attendance and retention at my school much easier to track and deal with. Want the best software on the market? Look no further, this is it.
Our schools have been in Colorado Springs, CO since 1986. We have grown to 4 locations with over 1,000 active students. It is imperative that we have a great, user friendly, interactive student management system. We had been with Champions Way for 6 years and have decided to make the switch to Kicksite. After researching several companies and systems, Kicksite was the clear choice for us. Kicksite’s customer service is exceptional and they were with us through every step during the transition. We thought it would be a nightmare to transfer so many files, but it was considerably better than we could have expected. Our staff thanks you for giving them the tools to improve the communication and management of our students!
