Teaching advanced students can be a challenge, especially at a martial arts seminar or when you visit another school. You only have a limited amount of time to work with, and you’re unlikely to have additional time to follow up.
Teaching at a Martial Arts Seminar – Episode 179
Many martial artists enjoy passing on the things they’ve learned. It’s fairly easy to teach things to your own students – you get to work with them week after week and make sure they progress. You guide them through the concepts you’re imparting and watch them grow. The same can not be said of teaching someone else’s students, however.
Whether it’s a martial arts seminar you’re asked to teach at or you’re a guest lecturer at someone’s school, there’s a skill to teaching in this way. Just as teaching your own students takes time, teaching someone else’s requires practice and a few other things. On today’s episode, we delve into the elements that make someone a successful – and requested – instructor in this format.
Topics covered in this episode include
- Remembering why you’re teaching
- Setting goals for your classes
- The importance of repetition
- The different methods of learning and how to teach to them
- How to handle someone that asks lots of questions
- How to handle someone that doesn’t get it
- Making sure you’re invited to return
