I started teaching a few years ago,but it's has been a class of ten or less people and they start and progress together.It has usually been friends of family and friends. This will not be he case with the new students,pretty much anyone will be able to join.
What I'm looking for is some pointers from experienced instructors. Maybe some questions I need to ask and strategies for accomplishing our new responsibilities while keeping quality instruction.
Thankyou very much!
-Brian




Brian, I'm not sure if this is the information you are looking for, but here goes. Our organization is used to teaching multiple belt levels within the same class. The beginners classes, especially, are challenging because we have 3 belt levels, plus new students coming in at various times.

How we handle that is to do some things with the group as a whole and some things where they are broken into smaller groups by belt level. Everyone can usually work on the same hand techniques at the same time, as well as floor drills, isometrics, push ups, sit ups, squats, etc. They can also do kicks on targets at the same time; you just demonstrate one kick for each belt level and instruct them to work on that one kick 5 or 10 times with each leg. Having them do push ups/and or sit ups when they finish lets you know when the first pair has completed the technique so you can be ready to move on to the next technique.

To teach forms (katas) you can divide the groups up by belt level. If you have electrical tape in two parallel lines down the side of the floor, you can have one group work on their stances and blocks, while another group works on kicks down a rail (or down another side of the room) while you work with a third group on their form/kata. If you need to divide them into more groups, you can have a group doing jabbing techniques on targets, a group doing strength training exercises or shadow boxing or jumping rope.After about 5 minutes, stop and have the groups rotate.

If everyone but the newest students know their form/kata, you can have everyone spread out and do their form 2-3 times and then go off to the side and do push ups, sit ups, squats, calf extensions, and repeat the cycle, while you work with the new students.

Sometimes I increase the difficulty of a technique for students who have been around for awhile. If I have a new student and I am teaching them the front kick, I may have the other white belt students do sets of 3 front kicks at time before putting their foot down to work on balance and challenge them a little more, or have them do an axe kick/front kick combination.

We alternate between large group activities, small group techniques, large group activities, and so on.

Hope that helps some.

LIKE BUTTERFLY WE PRACTICE BASICS AS A GROUP WHENWE MOVE INTO SELF DEFENCE WE PAIR UP A MORE EXPERIENCED KYU WITH A LOWER KYU.WE ALSO BREAK UP GROUPS ,BEGINNERS, INTERMEDIATE, AND ADVANCED, PART OF OUR CURRICULUM REQUIRES STUDENTS TO ASSIST IN TEACHING, THIS GIVES U HELP AND GIVES STUDENTS TEACHING EXPERIENCE,CONFIDENCE,AND MAKES A STRONGER SCOOL

Suggestion? Be sure to file your taxes before then. Other than that, good luck.
