What does a black belt say about the person wearing it? In my book it says that the person wearing it, has achieved a certain standard in martial arts training. But does it mean they are able to teach, what they themselves have learned? In my opinion the answer is No!
Understanding how children and adults learn, through either visual, aural, linguistic and kinaesthetic learning for example, is very important. The class must be taught in a way that allows all types of learners to flourish. All my classes are kept small with numbers kept below 10 if possible. My system of learning is to have more classes with lower numbers in them, that takes in consideration of age, physical skills and the type of learner the student is. Teaching in a positive learning environment is as important as earning or wearing a black-belt
I have a level 3 teaching certificate. This qualifies me to be able to officially teach in learning establishments, local education facilities and colleges. I have taught conflict management and physical intervention at both Northbrook and Worthing 6th form colleges. I am constantly in a state of learning by going on courses that help me to teach to a higher standard, with improved techniques of relaying information to my students.
I am also a fully qualified First Aid trainer, fully trained in resuscitation for adults and children.
