Billing Company Breakdown


  • Can be the “bad guy” when you need to collect from a long-time student
  • Take the burden of billing/collections off your hands
  • Appears “professional”
  • Offers marketing & consulting materials to help your school succeed


  • Expensive at 5-10% of your revenues
  • Difficult to get any assistance with marketing/consulting if you’re a small school
  • Need to call in any changes to a student’s price or payment schedule
  • No control over how Billing Company collectors treat your customers when they call to collect money
  • School owner is still responsible for any true “debt collection” that the billing company can’t recover


We’ve heard of some schools using Martial Arts Billing companies with a lot of success and a high level of cusotmer satisfaction. While I question the need for them to take quite so much of a school’s revenue, billing is an essential piece of running the school and most owners want to teach Karate, not collect payments.

However, our experience shows that if you can find a system to automatically collect student dues by either credit card or direct debit from their checking account, your collection rates could actually end up being better than with a billing company.


Through a lot of research and some extensive testing, we have found a way to offer Martial Arts Schools vastly lower rates with a super-simple school management software that will accomplish everything you need to run your school and much more! The one piece that we felt was missing was a professional-looking website to pull it all together…and creating great Martial Arts websites is somethign we do well.
