I explain the basics to the new student and remind them that somethings may take longer to get and patience is required. That small gains are important. We then will do warm-ups and depending how they handle it, the intensity may increase. Followed by stretching, seeing when they struggle and where the excel. Each new student is different and so I teach each a different amount at first. At the end we review and talk about what will be next.
I have over 25 years of martial arts training. In Taekwondo most all of my training was under Grand Master Tae Hong Choi, also many National seminars on techniques and philosophy. Other martial arts have been through various International instructors through out the years.
Pricing varies, at the studio I run there is a set price for classes. But if private or semi-private lessons are requested it varies as to the focus of the training.
I assisted my instructor Grand Master Tae Hong Choi at Mt Hood Community College, then taught at his studio. Then he gave me his classes both at Mt Hood Community College and at Lewis & Clark College. I currently try my best to teach all that he has taught me and continue his legacy.
I have worked with age 4 and up to 68. Some of my students have been ADD, slightly autistic, muscle degeneration, and others. I understand how to help these students overcome this issues and grow within the martial arts.
I just got back from the US Hanmadang in Denver, CO, which is an International tournament, in which I am the Referee Chairman. This event is like a festival in which the participants compete against each other while cheering for each other. This year we had many Para-athletes. Seeing all participants smile and enjoy the experience of Taekwondo is inspiring.
Get background information, find out all the costs, ask how long between promotions and the costs, and watch how they interact with the students. I believe the student should know the all required information before testing, and not just test because 'x' number of classes. Don't become a paper tiger.
Don't judge the classes based solely on price. Remember in many cases you get what you pay for. Would you buy a car just because it was cheapest? Are you going to strive eating that .99 cent burger everyday, or would you be healthier eating a blanaced meal that maybe slightly more but gives you energy and strength?
