We’ve all heard this story …
” He was a weak, sickly child but through his training in martial arts he became one of the most admired martial arts masters. ”
I am sure this [common] story was true for some and an embellishment for others. Regardless, what we can learn from such stories is an important lesson: work hard, persevere, and do your best; sooner or later you WILL get better at anything you undertake.
I have personally accumulated over a decade of martial arts training. I know for sure that I am far better at martial arts than I was when I first started. Having studied several different systems, I can also say with certainty that there was a clear, temporal increase in my ability, in each system I studied, as time passed.
Just this year I began teaching regularly and I see many similarities in my knowledge and skill development curves for leading classes. In this blog, I will share some ideas about curriculum planning and execution from my experience teaching Krav Maga after completing the Instructor Certification with Global Martial Arts University. And yes, there was indeed a learning curve and trial and error involved!
