I wonder what people's thoughts are on organising training sessions without an instructor. What I am thinking is in addition to regular training with an instructor, very often some students want to practice outside of class. One person might want to work on, say, a roundhouse kick, but they have nobody in their private circle of friends that will hold pads for them or who can spot for them. Someone else might want to practice and particular self defence technique and so on. So I'm thinking about hiring a hall for an hour, and a few of us from our club meet to practice various things. None of the more dangerous stuff like sparring. We can save that for when we're under qualified supervision. What's people's thoughts on this please? Would it be necessary/good etiquette to consult our instructor first, or is this just a group of mates meeting for casual practice? What about insurance needs etc or liability waivers or anything?
