5.0 out of 5 stars A Bible for any Martial Arts Instructor, 25 April 2009
This review is from: Martial Arts Instruction: Applying Educational Theory and Communication Techniques (Paperback)
A very professional & well compiled book useful for any martial arts instructor, but even more so for karate in particular. Lawrence Kane background is Guju-ryu.

The book is well illustrated with many pictures, diagrams & charts. From lesson planning to a typical karate syllabus.

No matter whether you've just started your own martial arts club or have been teaching many years, you will fair much better by delving into the dozens of useful exercise within these pages. Why re-invent the wheel when you can learn so much from other people's mistakes & problems that they have successfully overcome.

There aren't many other titles around on teaching & instructing martial arts classes, but you may also be interested in John Graybeals book on The Art of Empowering Children: A Karate Masters Secrets or a very good title by Carol Wiley's called Martial Arts Teachers on Teaching gives dozens of stories directly from other instructors' sucesses & failures. Also there are Sang Kims book called Teaching Martial Arts: The Way of the Master is about the only other decent book I could possibly recommend or his one called Martial Arts Instructor's Desk Reference: A Complete Guide to Martial Arts Administration

Chapters include;-
1) Understanding learning style differences between students.
2) Using the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator
3) Application of the Six Teaching Styles to Martial Arts
4) Fostering a Positive Learning Environment.
5) Dojo Lesson Planning

Appendices include;- sample lesson plan, determining your psychological profile, kata of Goju-ryu, requirements through to Shodan.
A thoroughly enjoyable & highly informative book.
