'On the Back' of Teaching Martial Arts
Effective communication between instructor and student is essential if both are to derive y maximum benefit from training. This book identifies the principles of efficient coaching as set out by all of the national coaching and coach education training agencies, particularly the Martial Arts Commission.
There is helpful advice on how and when to teach skills, using traditional demonstration methods and modern visual aids, and how to analyse student performance, providing useful feedback and suggestions for improving technique. Examples of ways to promote both short-and long-term memory recall are given, as well as training plans, incentive schemes and tips on preparing for grading.
Tony Gummerson, former international athlete and national coach, is the coach education consultant for the Martial Arts Commission.
