I’ve read on line an opinion that every black belt should teach.
I posted that on my facebook and got loads of replies with mixed opinions, so I thought it would be interested to read your opinions on subject.
I disagree with that statement; I believe that not everyone is capable or willing to teach.
Also the first dan is not a qualification it is just a progression in development, usually having nothing to do with teaching. I understand that some organisations have system in place that every black belt has training in coaching.
I give people a choice if they are willing to teach and this is something that they have interest in I get suggest to them courses where they can learn how to teach.
Some believe that being good black belt is equal with being good teacher that is a flowed thinking. Same as good fighter is automatically a good coach.
What is your opinion on it and how your organisation sees black belts?
