Curriculum Help

2-part question:

1.

I have roughly 5-6 years of instructing experience teaching my teacher's curriculum. Recently, I've been able to spend my time teaching a small (3-7) group of students two times a week. Having zero experience creating a complete system's curriculum, I'm struggling with flow. One issue in particular: if a new student were to come in, what would I teach them to keep them from being/feeling "behind." I've been working on a rotating curriculum so that the whole class learns the same thing together. Anyone with experience in this area?

Ananku Kata History

Hi everyone! I need your help regarding the kata Ananko (Ananku, Annanko) and whether anyone knows personally or indirectly the history of the kata, or would be able to point me in the right direction, as I am trying to gather information for my own publication of the kata.  My own research of this kata has thrown up some interesting points regarding it’s history leading to a chapter written by Zenpo Shimabukuro in his book ‘Shorin Ryu Seibukan - Kyan’s Karate’ on the history of Ananko. Zenpo being a direct student of Chotoku Kyan the creator of the kata.

Training in Kyoto

I will be in Kyoto, Japan for 2 weeks at the end of June, and wondered if anyone could recommend a Shotokan karate dojo in the city.  I will likely try to work out with the club at Doshisha University, but it would be cool to visit a local dojo in the area.  Any suggestions?  Steve

Martial arts in the Baltimore area?

Hey all.

I have a student who is going to be moving to the Baltimore area. I wanted to reach out and see if anyone knows of good martial arts schools in that area. I'm not sure what he'd be looking for though I'd suspect he'd like to stick with Karate. 

Thanks for any help!

Can anyone please recommend somewhere or someone that can help with Hanko creation? Since this year has seen the biggest change in my Martial Arts in at least a decade I feel something new is needed. I created my own previously but now want something much more professional.

Training partner(s) wanted, SW Herts, UK, (WD3 postcode)

Hi all,

I find myself in the same trap as many others. I have the interest, I have access to a training hall, I have all the necessary kit (mats, mitts, pads etc...) I have 15 years of "classical" karate experience and a few years of (intermittent) practical "applied" karate experience BUT I have no one to play with on a regular basis to really work at the level I'd like to.

Self Defence Demonstration

Hello Guys,
