Best Answer

Not to be a karate instructor, but to run a business/health club style facility, you must be licensed and registered business. There are seldom any rules for teaching Martial Arts, so it is up to you to determine whether the instruction you are getting is 'real' and from a qualified instructor. Things to look for include affiliation with a respected national or international organization.
