The joy of this win is that it talks about concepts being at the heart of the matter. Learn a concept, and all the techniques come rolling out.
INSTRUCTOR WIN–The course has truly polished my existing approach to teaching. It’s helped balance some theory with application of instruction. Some specifics of keeping discipline in, but with emphasis on humor and politeness did tweak my train of thought a tad. This has already improved the discipline of the class, but yet maintains that fun pleasant atmosphere that I like to be part of. Also, the concept of getting a student to complete something gives a much more specific goal as an instructor. This way of thinking can be applied easily with a drill, or a belt, or even particular aspects of my life and the students. Generally, when something is true, it’s rather a simple concept and can be applied in different points in life. This is true with the information in this course.?WG The idea of concepts is core to learning any art, and to teaching any art. It is the heart of matrixing, but, oddly, I didn’t learn this through learning concepts, I learned it through cross filing techniques until the core concepts came out. It actually surprised me when I discovered that nobody else in the history of the world had done what I did with this matrixing thing.
