Does anyone have any recommendations on teaching material that might translate well into the dojo?




What are you asking? Material for drills, sparring, selfdefense?

Oops. Sorry about being unclear. I'm looking for any general material on how to teach (ie. in a classroom, training courses, etc.,). It doesn't have to be MA specific, just any kind of teaching resource that might help move my teaching style beyond the "instructor" approach.

Don't know if such a thing exists or not but any suggestions or ideas would be appreciated.

You dont need material or reference books for that. The most important thing is relating to the student. Know your students and have a relationship with them. You must know yourself too. When you know yourself, and you know another person, it is easier to train them because you can find a common ground in which to relate the material to them. Start a small group of students. Four or six. Get to know them, train with them, and conversate with them. Be there friend. Then you can teach them anything.

You might look up the work of Parker Palmer. In particular his book "The courage to Teach".

Thanks for the biblio ref, Mark. I scanned through the excerpts and it looks like a keeper for the reference library.

I like to work technique into our warm up so I can correct mistakes, see how the student is progressing but most of all to give praise when something is done correctly. These are never empty praises like, good job, but specific praises, like nice rotation on that punch or your power on that kick is much better.

There was a student that I taught that had problems with her step side kick but worked very hard to get it down. Well this particular class she was nailing it. I stopped the class and called her up front to demonstrate her great technique. She did a splendid job and I complimented her on her nice form and awesome power and she said very loud, Thank you sir! And she got back in line, but, I noticed that her technique was bad on the other leg and I said, you have done an outstanding job on improving your kick on your right leg but your left leg sucks. She laughed and said very loud, Thank you sir!

Hi -

Thanks for the suggestion! I'm adding it to the top of the MA reading pile that is growing faster than I can keep up with...

Hi -
I've finally taken steps to do this. Some of my initiative towards doing this has come from reading the posts in this forum.

I'll be teaching a class of kids starting in January and I've known most of them for at least 4 years. Hopefully, having had some kind of relationship with the students outside the dojo will help with what we'll be doing in class.
