Organizing a fitness focused Kickboxing class for untrained students
I've recently been given the responsibility of organizing and facilitating a fitness-based student club for students at my university. My first thought was that I would teach Muay Thai as a fitness activity. In other words, focusing heavily on drills (sparring is officially a no-no) as the medium for exercise. I've coached muay thai 1-on-1 for probably 5 years, but I've never done group classes. I'm a little unsure as to my methodology for organizing and controlling the class, not to mention teaching complete beginners and keeping them from being bored.
If anybody here has organized/taught Muay Thai to 8-16 people before, I'd appreciate any advice you could give about types of drills and general methodology. If you have any websites or books to recommend, I'd be happy to do some reading/watching as well.
