Once you fall in love with martial arts, there’s really no escape – take it from us! So what happens when you fall head first into the world of Kung Fu or Krav Maga and can’t get out? We suggest giving up your day job and getting one of these awesome jobs that let you practice martial arts while you work – because why not?!
Quite self explanatory really. You guard a door and if anyone tries anything you beat them until they give up. But, before you start getting excited about a free pass to beat up anyone you don’t like, remember there are lots of regulations put in place to protect you and your victims when things get out of hand. Being a bouncer is not a free ticket to beat up anyone you don’t like (despite so many bouncers doing exactly that) and we want to make it clear that we do not support unnecessary violence. However, if the time comes and you need to defend yourself or the place/person you are protecting, then that’s when your martial arts training comes in, and with all that extra training you’ll be given, you’ll win every fight.
An ancient tradition whereby thuggish men often travel the land searching for that guy on the wanted poster, dead or alive. Today, the tradition is still alive and well, but in our modern ‘civilised’ era, only the police can kill with impunity – so keep it kosher okay? Some famous bounty hunters like Dog or Boba Fett, are idols to many martial arts enthusiasts and law enforcement lovers. It’s like all the danger of being a cop, with none of the rules – and when it comes down to it, it’s just you and them – and you want your reward.
Martial Arts Instructor
Okay, so it’s not as badass as the two jobs above but hell, if you dont wanna run the risk of killing someone, or more likely being killed by someone, why not train other people to do that job. Become your very own Mr Myagi and unlock your potential – you also get a free car wax every week, a perk of the job. If you don’t like speaking, then fine, be like the old master in Kill Bill Volume 2 and train only by way of your actions and your long white beard. The good thing (or maybe bad thing?) is that most of the martial arts industry also has no centralised regulations or standards, meaning any idiot can set up a training school. But again, we suggest you actually get good before opening your own Cobra Kai, otherwise you’ll end up in the dirt in no time.
Join the force or just start your own business as a private detective. Perfect for those who love martial arts but also love to know everybody’s secrets. If you are out in the field, your martial arts skills must come in real handy, and the job verall can be pretty diverse and interesting. Sure you may not be as classy as Sherlock Holmes but there are almost certainly training courses where you are, because PDs are hard to come by these days.
Here we go, this is the big one. Every day it is your job to protect that VIP from absolutely any harm. If you fail, you are either killed in the process or fired soon after. You need incredible reactions and laser-like focus to spot any eventuality that may occur. The great thing too is that the person you are protecting most likely will be the target of someone at some point so you are bound to let loose your best Krav Maga skills on some asshole that realises he had bitten off more than he could chew. Also, you get to look like an idiot running after your VIP’s car if you happen to end up working for Kim Jung Un.
