I teach juniors - ie children that their age ranges are from about 10-14. I also train and help out in other adults classes although I am not the main instructor there.
my question is that I would like to introduce kata based sparring or even a basic 10-15 mins grappling in each of my juniors class.
the problem I have is that I have not got much experience with grappling, only from what I have seen in Kata's or from watching Iain's DVDs. I have also watched the Kata based sparring one too but the other problem I have is time. Because i train and also have my own teaching to do it doesnt leave me much time to go and join the local Judo club or MMA club at the moment.
I am training for my 2nd Dan at the end of the year.!!! and am out most nights doing things and i cant keep being away from the family!!!.
I am just getting to the point where I want to learn and teach this but not too sure on how to go about it. Is it better to leave it maybe till after I have done my grading and then do a bit of judo/mma and then show them. Or take whats in the Kata and show them that.
any help would be great.
