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 methods best suit their needs. The author'ss approach balances the reality that martial arts instructors 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. It is a tactical toolset useful to anyone'ss teaching style and explains how to optimize time and attention. The book is designed to individual preferences and learning styles and is effective for both children and adults. This is the book instructors want to have on their desk, open and dog-eared. While the old adage, 'sthose who can'st do, teach's is not entirely true, all too often 'sthose who can do's cannot teach effectively. Lawrence Kane has created and taught martial arts classes, business seminars, and college-level computer courses. A well-rounded martial artist, he has spent the last 30 years studying traditional arts such as karate, kobudo, and judo, as well as modern marksmanship and knife combat. He currently teaches medieval weapons forms and Goju Ryu karate. 1.
