I am currently teaching Science at a bi-lingual school in Northern Thailand.
I am teaching to grades 1, 2 and 3 (kids ages about 6-10 years old).
Anyways for the last period of every Friday we have 'club' in which teachers organise various clubs (which last a whole term) and students choose which club they are interested in.
Now for next term I am interested in starting a body-movement and light martial arts club.
I am thinking about using Cheng Hsin type playful exercises to explore partner dynamics in a very light martial sense..... and I was thinking about using basic Intu-Flow® and body-flow exercises to explore some body movement.
I have decided I will only have about 10-15 students max, and I will only let grade 3 (9-10 year olds) participate for now.
My project offer is this, as I am no instructor and am just working myself through the CST material.... I get 50 minutes per week to do this.
I was thinking it might be nice to warm up with some basic Intu-Flow® and vibration/relaxation stuff.... play a few partner games and then work on a body-flow exercise. Perhaps just one exercise per week and then towards the end start giving them a chance to make their own chains.... see what happens.
As kids this age are generally pretty mobile, it shouldn't be too hard with fear reactivity, more about the coordination.
I'm just wondering if any coach or instructor out there might be interested in working very simply with me.... just helping me with a simple progression for each body-flow exercise that both:
1. helps me get it!
2. makes it easy to show the children the mechanics.
I can blog in the 'training group' part of the forum, etc.
I get no extra pay for this, it's a part of my duty as a teacher.
If RMAX thinks this is a bad idea, well I can just stick to the Cheng Hsin portion instead.
Thanks for reading.
