I'm updating the student manual I use, and debating what should go in there. I could post most of the info on the public website, and could create a members-only area to store the rest, but I do like having a paper manual to review with a new student. I probably prefer it because it's what I had. That said, what do you put in your manual? Here's a list of stuff that's in it or that I'm considering (all off the top of my head, so probably skipping something): Dojo rules and etiquette How to tie and fold the uniform Testing/rank requirements (possibly not a complete list) List of techniques (might be in the requirements) History of the art/style Recommended reading list Some articles (this might include self-defense/self-protection topics and philosophy) Payment terms Equipment requirements/recommendations List of other equipment available for purchase? (since I don't have a place to display anything) Basic vocabulary (I'm considering re-instituting a vocabulary test early on, so I can stop re-explaining terms) Maybe a list of exercises that are recommended? I haven't included anything on fitness in the manual in the past, but this might be a good place to introduce recommended stretches, a few basic exercises, etc. That would give them a chance to work on them outside class, so they learn them faster and get more benefit. Any thoughts on what's on that list or isn't would be appreciated. I've used 3-ring binders up until now, so students could put their notes in them, and I could add/remove/replace pages as needed. I'm considering having a small batch printed to reduce the cost and make them easier to store. To go that route, I need to get them closer to a fixed product.
