Coaching Course Structure
The lesson structure of this course has completely upgraded.
It’s been set out in a specific way, so that by the time the learner, you, have (has) progressed to the WAKO specific bits, you’ve got a huge understanding of Coaching Principles across all sports, Anatomy & Physiology, Exercise Prescription and Health & Safety from an Instructors POV.
The WAKO Instructor Specific literature and lessons then follow, which, nicely flows into Kickboxing Specific learning.
Now, we’re not here as a tutorial into how to throw (X) strike or choreograph detailed combinations, you’re wearing a black belt, you’re WAKO Graded and a full member of the organisation, you should be competent in delivering this. What we do discuss as a topic, is Movement Mechanics. Applying the knowledge of biomechanics to Martial Arts. This in turn, allows the instructor to better tailor learning to individuals in the class regardless of joint mobility restrictions etc.
