So I'm using some spare time in lockdown to make my way (slowly) through the ITF taekwondo patterns and, using a variety of sources, bringing together good applications and drills (I know the Pinans and could just go with them but I like a challenge!). It's mainly something to spice up training when it all gets running again but also for making my own sense of things.
In my quest to keep things ordered and logical I'm arranging the applications and drills by grade (white to black) and trying to have an overall structure in place.
So that gets me onto words like curriculum, syllabus, strategy and tactics. And I'm not entirely sure what they define and how best to use them to structure and make sense of what I'm doing.
So in relation to martial arts what's a "curriculum" and what's a "syllabus"? What sort of stuff goes in each thing? How are they used in class training and gradings?
Is the "strategy" what you are trying to achieve and "tactics" how you go about achieving it?
I feel some clarity of terms might help me keep my ideas in order.
