This is more a question than a suggestion
I have just received a wonderful email from a student in which he said he finds my Martial Arts classes a great balance of Fun, Learning and Safety
For me, keeping your classes "Safe" is part of being a professional and intelligent instructor
So I wondered what you would consider the term "Safe" means in martial arts classes and also, what you guys do in your own classes to help enforce this element of "Safety"
For me, some examples would be....
Safe from injury - not asking students to perform silly jumping spinning stunts over chairs, etc
Safe from injury - ensuring students are challenged physically, but within their own capabilities
Safe from ego - allowing students to ask questions andmake mistakes without getting hurt physically or being ridiculed or punished in any way
Safe from bad attitude - an environment where bad attitude is not accepted or allowed to grow - a compasonate and supportive class with fellow students all willing to help each other
Safe from Bad Technique and Training Methods - no standing on your students legs to "help" them achieve deeper stances
So - what do you think guys and gals?
