A friend of mine recently asked if i would be willing to do some classes with some very young children (about 5 years old), I have experience teaching group of children in my day job so i said i would think about it.
I have some ideas for the class so far
Focus of the class, i don;t want ti to be another punch kick class ideal would like to teach them something more useful. more aviodance of danger, confidence building etc.
Attention span of students- i now from teaching before thisis going to be an issue, keeping the classes short , active, and fun is my aim. so a game based approach
Content - becasue of their early development stage i am not really wanting them to pad work, especially not with the hands, i would like to teach them some body awarness drills, balnace, rolling, co ordination, possible some very short simplified forms
can anyone out there with more experience give me some feedback on what i have so far please. any siggestions welcome
