ASK US ABOUT OUR NEW INTRO STUDENT SPECIAL
In Moo Sul Kwan Taekwondo classes I tend to be rather self-directed in my learning. Whether I’m doing basics, poomse, or one steps, I’m constantly looking for something that I can improve upon and then practice it repeatedly until I have it down consistently. I find this greatly helps me in class, not just by actively improving my skills but also by helping me maintain better focus and concentration in class by keeping me engaged in what I am doing. By being actively engaged in class, I become more motivated to push my limits and become an even stronger martial artist. As an assistant instructor, I try to encourage my students to do the same.
When assistant-teaching junior classes, sometimes I’ll have a student come in after a long day and they just go through the motions because they’re tired. Instead of trying to ask them to fix the same thing repeatedly, such as paying attention, getting lower in their stances, or using power, I’ll ask them how they think they’re doing and pick one thing that they can do better.
Asking the student to evaluate their own performance can cause them to switch gears and think about what they just did.
Actively working on a goal they set for themselves can motivate them to work harder in class, striving to do their best.
Asking the student to process what they just did and develop their own solution for improvement encourages them to practice not only their critical thinking skills, but self-awareness as well. These skills are very important and are used all throughout life, whether inside or outside of class, at work or school, at a young age, or as an adult. Self-awareness and critical thinking are very necessary in being a self-directed learner to be able to evaluate what needs to be improved upon and how to improve it. By being a self-directed learner, one can advance further ahead in anything they do because not only are they paying attention to what is going on, but they are also giving 100% towards improvement.
