Teaching your classes via Zoom in an empty room to students in their living room creates multiple layers of difficulty.
Here are some tips to help you create a more enjoyable experience for your students.
Self-Defense: Since students can’t partner off, focus on situational awareness, anti-abduction, anti-bully, verbal self-defense, and demonstrate escapes with your partner. BUT DO NOT point out that, “Because you don’t have a partner….” Focus on the positive. “Today, you’re going to learn this escape. Watch closely….”
NOTE: One of the best things you can do is to invite them to see your new “updated curriculum.”
This is important because rather than do the same old material in a more difficult setting, you can introduce new material in the new setting.
For instance, the Empower Kickboxing skills are much easier to teach and do than any traditional skills.
