Teaching Kobudo to Karate instructors
I had a wonderful morning today teaching some sai kata tomy friends Chen Shen Sensei and to Chen Sensei in Karate Box (Shanghai).
Instructing an instructor needs to be done careful. On one hand, you need to show your expertise in whatever your are teaching, but on the other hand you need to show respect and finding something that relates to their previous experience so they can feel the progress faster that, let's say, a total beginner.
Luckily for me they are great Shotokan karateka, had some previous weapons experience and were really eager to learn more and more.
Hope to repeat soon!
