....... Go to the Dojo!


Great Instructors don't rely on just one method to keep 100% control of their class. They focus on using 50 different methods that produce 2% control each. Here are just a few...
1. Teach with Passion. Let the students see your enthusiasm and excitement as you teach. This alone will capture their attention.
2. Continually catch students doing things right and publicly praise them.
3. Be constantly aware of the state (Mood) of your class. When you detect the overall atmosphere of the class is falling, do something that will pick the enthusiasm levels up again such as going on to the next segment of your class or giving some compliments and encouragement out loud.
4. Use students names throughout the class to keep them involved and engaged. (Use them as an example)
5. Tell the kids you are looking for an assistant for the next technique – someone who is listening well.
6. Develop the skill of commending individual students by name whilst conducting your class! (For example if you are calling out numbers for a basic punching drill, you would do the following: “1... 2... good punch Tom... 3... 4... 5 excellent Juliette!...6... 7...”)
7. Sit or stand the child next to you and use them as a demonstration person.
8. Kids are more attentive when there is movement so move around gesturing as you talk.
9. Where possible, use humour.
10. Vary the tone of your voice throughout the class by raising it, lowering it, whispering, impersonating and emphasizing.
11. Clap your hands or click your fingers as you speak.
12. Give individual students a reputation to live up to by pointing out to the entire class how focused they are.
13. If you have a student who struggles to concentrate, look out for the moment they show improvement and acknowledge them immediately in front of the class.
14. Pick out students who are concentrating particularly well and put them in a line at the front of the class. Then label that row out loud as the leadership row. (Hehehe, watch how all of the students concentrate to try and get in that row!)
15. At the end of a session, commend a student’s behaviour in front of their parents.
16. Consistently remind the students that in order to earn a Black Belt, they must have a Black Belt attitude first! And a person who has a Black Belt attitude is a person who concentrates and listens.
17. Make sure that the students posture is always upright in class while they are sitting or standing. This dramatically increases their focus and concentration.
18. Instruct the students to show you how a Black Belt sits, stands, walks and goes about their training. Get them to pretend that they are a Black Belt for the next 5 minutes and then watch how they transform. (Hehehe... Let's hope that you have set a good example!😮)
19. When you notice the students enthusiasm levels start to fall, give them what I call a, ‘30 second state change.’
This is where you get them to do something totally unexpected like, free spar anyone, run and touch a certain wall or try and tap someone on top of the head. This quickly interrupts student’s thought patterns so they go from a mind set of ‘lost interest’ to a mind set of alertness and excitement in a matter of seconds. Once you have boosted their state, go onto your next drill and teach it with ENTHUSIASM!
20. Change the drills once you notice the students starts to loose interest. (This doesn’t mean do a different technique - just change the drill.😊)
21. Regularly remind your students that you listen with 3 things! Your ears, eyes and posture!
Ask your students, "who can recite the answer?" and then publicly praise the students who know it!
22. Make the drills appropriately challenging for everyone so you have an easy version for beginners and a harder version for your more advanced students.
And finally...
23. Make concentration a priority in your school! This begins with you as the Instructor, constantly cultivating your skill of maintaining the students focus within your class.
OK... now we are almost half way there! Do you have any ideas of your own? If so, I WOULD LOVE TO HEAR THEM!
By focusing on improving just one of these skills at time, you will develop the reputation of being a GREAT INSTRUCTOR around kids!
This will improve the results you gain with your students and also improve the retention in your school! 😀

Every kid needs a grown-up who takes care of them and is kind to them.
