First in the Moment then in Retrospect
In this video clip, I share with my apprentice instructors how to break through their limits of energy presence through demonstration. I've seen it many times where beginner level instructors hold back their skill and substitute it for higher level explanation or struggle through stage fright. It doesn't matter, black belts, fighters and enthusiasts all feel it when first serving as an instructor.
The emphasis in this video is to set the tone of practice with the elements of high quality instructor demonstration through high quality energy.
After developing an apprentice program at my school called the Instructor's College, I figure to share a little bit here on this YouTube channel for martial arts instructors and teachers looking for different perspectives to improve their own teaching style.
