A martial art instructor's job is to teach you to become proficient in a martial art and help you become the best martial artist you can be. Nothing else really matters. How physically fit the instructor is, how many trophies the instructor has, how educated the instructor is, how successful the instructor is, how wealthy the instructor is, how nice looking the instructor is, how old the instructor is, etc. do not matter. If these things are of more concern to you than becoming a great martial artist, then it will be easy for you to find an instructor. However, if finding an instructor that is capable of and willing to mold you into a great martial artist is your goal, then your task of find an instructor will be tougher. Great instructors, especially one who actually teach students in class, are difficult to find.
Instructors are usually affiliated with a national or regional martial arts organization. See the organizations topic for more information on organizations.
