There is a lot more to good coaching outside of being technically competant in your martial art. This course covered a lot of coaching theory but also included practical exercises in the classroom as well as evaluation of candidates in simulated teaching assignments over the week-end.
Those that know Bob sensei also know that he enjoys teaching Aikido and the opportunity was not to be missed having Bob teach our Senior, Youth and Junior classes over the weekend providing key insights into the core principles of good Aikido as well as some fun and games.
Thank you Bob!
We received by post today six new Level 1 Coaching Certificates from the BAA.
Congratulations to our candidates; Darragh, Emma, Mallaidh, Catherine, Emer and Ross. We all look forward to seeing them develop their coaching skills over the months and years ahead.
