Judo personal training
referring to Judo personal training, I’m not implying one-on-one
private lesson (popular Hollywood method of
superman / superwoman
production). Even Judo is individual sport and self-defense is a very
lonely activity, effective training
requires diverse training partners.
Personalization of training is adaptation
of techniques to the unique physical and psychological qualities of each
student should be primary
instructor’s task even in a large class.
While the ideal
size isn’t always possible, instructor in a large
class should create
groups and subgroups by physical level and establish cross training and
rotation schedule within and across such groups. Keeping written record
always a good idea.
skills assessment is the only first step in this direction.
assessment is especially critical in self-defense class as you should
more psychological diversity then in pure sport or martial art classes
you may expect students with similar and shared interests).
ultimate goal of personal training is to assist (and make it possible
student to develop a customized
technical arsenal on crown
technique level that will suffice for his or her needs.
