    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Want feedback

    In the near future I'm opening up an academy. Teaching private lessons in addition to my obligation to my current academy has been a useful tool in developing my teaching style. These are changes I'm thinking of implementing.

    A. No Drilling

    I'm scrapping drilling after the white belt level. I'm replacing it with situational rolling in which the uke attacks, while the primary player is limited to a single technique or series. I start them off in the worst case scenario and usually toss in an impossible time constraint like 30 seconds or so. This is rough as hell on the body, but it gets results. Its also how I train myself.

    B. Live self defense

    Even in modern schools, the trend is often to seperate the self defense and drill it statically. One of the best systems I've encountered for teaching self defense was about 90% live or so. A lot of BJJ students don't quite realize that if it looks like they're sneaking up on people and strangling them, then thats exactly what they're being taught to do. They don't drill it live and often **** it up when they do it out in public.

    C. No curriculum

    One of the easiest ways to beat the **** out of my teammates is to step outside the curriculum. Its more of a liability than it is useful.

    Anyways, feedback is appreciated. This is in YMAS and not a moderated forum because I need feedback from morons too. Can't turn them away.

    Drilling is important at any level, unless it's all you do, in which case you won't get anywhere with it.

    I've found that my ability to demonstrate technique has dropped immensely. To compensate, I simplified my teaching style a bit. On the other hand, I've found that my ability to do the same techniques has increased significantly.

    Where will this school be?
    I don't know. East coast. Possibly as far south as Florida.

    What style do you do?

    A sounds awful. How long are they white belts?

    For B--what does self defense mean in this context?

    C sounds hokey. What do you even mean?

    **** that. Michigan is cold.

    Do you have any martial art experience/fight experience
    About a decade. Most relevantly, I'm a purple belt in BJJ. On the way there I hit pan ams (1-1), no gi pan ams (1-1), ny open (0-1) and mundials (3-1) as well as the standard local and national stuff.

    What style do you do?
    BJJ. I may end up teaching a JKD type style as well, but that would be done in a more traditional manner.

    A sounds awful. How long are they white belts?
    Couple years I'd say. IMO once you know how to move, its a matter of application, application, application.

    For B--what does self defense mean in this context?
    Practical applications.

    C sounds hokey. What do you even mean
    Currently I'm required to teach a set curriculum. If something isn't on there, it doesn't get taught. I don't see this as a good thing since it limits the knowledge of the students and limits my ability to teach according to their needs.

    Eliminating drilling completely is a bad idea. Keep it to teach techniques and refine technique before adding resistance. High level athletes in all sports do drills to keep technique sharp before putting an opponent on them.

    No curriculum is a bad idea too. As a teacher you need as much as a road map as the students do. Without something set (and by set I don't mean set in stone) it will make it much harder on yourself to focus on a specific area.

    Now I also have to parrot something someone else already asked, what is your experience, what art, etc . . .
