Overview

While the old adage, "those who can't do, teach," is not entirely true, all too often "those who can do" cannot teach effectively. This book is unique in that it offers a holistic approach to teaching martial arts; incorporating elements of educational theory and communication techniques typically overlooked in budo.

Teachers will improve their abilities to motivate, educate, and retain students, while students interested in the martial arts will develop a better understanding of what instructional method best suits their needs.
A tactical toolset useful to anyone's teaching styleImprove your ability to motivate, educate, and retain studentsExplains how to optimize time and attentionDesigned to individual preferences and learning stylesEffective for both children and adultsThe author's approach balances the reality that martial arts instructs are responsible for ensuring the safety of practitioners who learn potentially deadly techniques with the truism that if their classes are not enjoyable and productive no one will participate in them.

Learning styles of students are as varied as the martial arts themselves, and the teacher that can recognize and meet the needs of all students will achieve the greatest success. This book provides a wealth of effective ways to teach and communicate with students of all ages, levels and learning styles - so that everyone has the opportunity to learn and grow. An enlightening, thoughtful and highly practical read that I hope gets in the hands of every sensei out there!
