Ref 6870 – Martial Arts Education Specialist – South Essex
Blacks Brokers are pleased to bring to the market this martial arts education specialist currently operating within five primary schools in the South Essex area.
Southend Martial Arts (sma) has been operating consistently within the same school and gym settings since 2006. Our client established the business to provide professional coaching and education in self defence and personal safety. The brand is very well known and has a strong base of regular customers in place across six settings. Southend Martial Arts offers a broad spectrum of education throughout KS1 and KS2.
Southend Martial Arts operate within five schools: Our Lady Of Ransom School, Great Wakering Primary Academy, Ashingdon Primary School, Plumerow Primary Academy and Bournes Green Infants School from Monday to Friday. There is also a Saturday class which takes place at David Lloyd Leisure in Southend. Our client has secured two new school settings in which classes will begin in September 2019, these schools are St Mary’s Catholic Primary Academy and Westborough Primary School.
The business is ideally suited to a hands-on owner-operator with a passion for martial arts education and work with children but due to our client’s new business opportunities, the business is offered for sale. This presents an excellent opportunity for a new owner-operator or team to take the business to the next level.
Our client has secured free use of space within all but one school. Great Wakering Primary Academy is leased on a rolling agreement at £15 per session.
The business operates with our client in part time employment supported by one additional instructor also working on a part time basis.
Southend Martial Arts has traded solidly since opening and our client has established a strong customer base that is growing consistently. We are advised that the business currently has annual turnover of £25,000 with profits of £20,000. Of this, 70% comes from direct debits and the rest comes from bacs transfer and cash payments.
This unique business is well established with a strong, well known brand. Our client has secured an enviable reputation and much custom is generated via word of mouth and recommendations. There is plenty of scope to develop the business further with the introduction of further classes during the day, an online and social media presence and a strong marketing drive. A new owner may also look to develop franchise opportunities for this brand throughout the UK. This proposition would ideally suit an owner operating team who could push the business forward and build upon the solid and impressive trading foundations. Early viewings are strongly advised. Business: £49,950.
