    My Daily Lesson Plan Thread

    I decided to start a thread dedicated to my daily lesson plans. I think it's important for teachers to record what they teach so they can look back and reflect on it later. For readers of this thread, my lessons usually start with basics, isolate a section of a form, and then we spar with whatever principle we're working with. Interspersed, I try to mix in some esoteric things.

    Keeping detailed records of your lessons is an excellent idea. Seems laborious, but saves you time in the long-run and will finally making your teaching much more logical.

    Thanks. I'm also making a place where I can collect them and eventually reflect on them.

    Any Sensei serious about instruction HAS to do this. Good work.

    Re: My Daily Lesson Plan Thread

    My last couple of lessons have been review of basics and kata. I taught Pinan Yon Dan to some students the other day. This is the first kata with an obviously life threatening move, so we had an important discussion about life protection and the use force. Here's my latest lesson plan.

    Block #4
    Front Kick
    Crossface
    Knifehand
    Single leg takedown

    Kata

    Pinan Nidan

    Kumite

    Kick block to crossface takedown

    Kime

    St-9
    Gb-24
    High/low attack
    Meridian Theory
    Cycle of Creation and Destruction

    Re: My Daily Lesson Plan Thread

    My last lesson was a review session.

    We covered the following.

    Yoga for the Martial Artist
    Pinan Nidan and Pinan Yondan

    Then we held pads and covered the following strikes

    Basic punch _____
    Palm strike _____
    Knife hand _____
    Back fist _____
    Hammer fist _____
    Fore arm strike _____
    Front kick _____
    Heel kick _____
    Side kick _____
    Roundhouse kick _____
    Stomp kick _____
    Knee kick _____
    Spear hand_____
    Ridge hand _____
    Elbow strikes _____
    Leopard palm _____
    Push Kick _____
    Low sweeping kick_____
    Low instep kick _____
    Low jamming kick _____
    Leg Check _____

    And after that we were very sweaty and tired, so it was a good class.
