Self defense/sparring during 2012 Demo

In the sparring program, students will learn how to apply what they have learned in class to a dynamic fighting situation.  The main concepts of distance, timing and power will be covered in solo, two person and multi-person scenarios.  Physically, students will learn blocks, attacks, footwork and combinations, however, mentally they will learn so much more.  Students will learn how to stay calm when faced with adversity, the power of technique and exactness and will improve their confidence and awareness of potentially bad situations and how to dissolve or avoid an altercation.  The program is not about fighting, as much as it is about not fighting.

Teaching Programs (All ages)

Adult Assistant Instructor/Instructor Program

Why Assist/Teach?

  • Physically you will learn to break movements down, practice the basics and be asked to think about the basics from many different students’ points of view (you will learn the material on a much deeper level and begin to absorb what you thought you already knew)
  • Confidence is knowing what you can and cannot do… you will challenge this line and move it, in doing so you will grow… learning to speak in front of a group
  • Meaningful, helping others to develop and having a positive impact on their lives
  • Help to make the school grow and contribute to a community which supports you
  • Communication, learning how to effectively teach and motivate many different types of personalities
  • Learn about yourself, your strengths and areas to improve in, on a path to becoming a better human being

This program will teach the student how to assist an instructor in the teaching of a martial arts class. Through breaking down and teaching the basic movements each student will gain a deeper level of understanding of their foundation, grow in their confidence and learn how to positively impact the lives of others. Students will work on their ability to communicate, speak in front of a group, and learn about their own personal strengths and weaknesses.

In this program assistant instructors will begin to transition from assisting to leading a classroom. The instructor will learn how to effectively handle all aspects of the class: creating a lesson plan, coordinating assistants and effectively teaching warm-up, drills, forms, and self-defense, as well as, how to sign up prospective students, handle an introductory lesson, and balance by different individuals in a classroom setting. Instructors will work to improve communication, one-on-one and with a group, and continue their understanding of the foundation of their practice.

 

 

Assistant Instructor Training Program

– 12 weeks of hands on class work and teaching observation, with close Instructor Supervision and explanation – Saturday 10-11:30am –  Jan – April

This program is for Instructors at every level.  Every January we bring in 2 new groups of students at different age groups for a 11 week introduction to martial arts.  We assemble 2 different teams of instructors to teach these classes.  No matter what level instructor you are, from no experience to Senior Instructor, we are able to provide an opportunity for you to stretch yourself in an environment where you have plenty of support so that you will not be overwhelmed.  This is our most successful, and important Instructor Training of our year.  If you are interested in participating, please contact Instructor Mark or Instructor Karen.
