    Opening a martial arts studio without expertise is problematic. But a club structured properly with a solid charter and a dedicated board can hire an instructor. I see no problem with that approach. Especially considering how often the for pofit model goes bad. It may fail but so does opening a business most of the time. I would look for organizational and professional skills for the board and a dedication to training. Also martial arts for the vast majority is a hobby and a hobby is a great use for a club structure.

    Fly me out! I don't know JJJ or BJJ or even how to wrestle, but I make a hell of a nice Gin and Tonic.

    Why all the issues with who would be in charge? A board of five members voted in by members and require minimum attendance for board members. Maybe attend classes weekly for at least two years. With a charter and a solid organization the technical expert does not need to be the highest authority.
