2013: Teaching Models

Video from Dreynevent 2013, recorded by Dreynschlag.

I have been teaching martial arts in various capacities for the last 12 years or so, and a large portion of this was effectively an apprenticeship to more experienced instructors who taught me *how* to teach. I would like to share a few pearls of wisdom with the HEMA community, and would also like to introduce a new teaching model that I have developed for use within the Academy of Historical Arts. If you find yourself teaching or coaching within HEMA, and if you have not had much formal training in how to teach, then this discussion might be very helpful for you and will hopefully give you some new points of view about what is involved in teaching.
