Out on patrol with New Yorks’s Guardian Angels
After the patrol I attempted to get a cab back to Manhattan Island, little did I know when the Yankees are playing, no chance. The Guardian Angles are Just that, EQ personally took charge of my safety and escorted me to his hometown area of Washington heights, where he arranged a friend to drive me back to Lower East Manhattan. All this from a man I had only met on a ferry crossing to Staten Island. New Yorkers are a very friendly bunch unless give them reason to be otherwise.
Leadership talk by Ollie Ollerton
Worthing Karate and Martial Arts Academy prides its self on the quality of the students we produce not the quantity.
I always promised myself, that I would never ever become a belt selling factory for profit. All my students can be proud that when they pass any grading with me, it has been well and truly earned they will be able to enter any JKA dojo and wear their belt with pride.
Community Projects in Worthing
David came to deliver a session on self-defence to about 40 girl guides to support a suffragette themed evening. His talk and the techniques he demonstrated were amazing. Just the right balance of cautionary dialogue and confidence building. The girls really enjoyed the session and he took time to coach them on the self defence techniques to make sure they understood them and when to use them. I would recommend David for group talks and individual coaching.
Children learn teamwork and co-operation
I’m not just a martial arts teacher and black belt.
Understanding how children and adults learn, through either visual, aural, linguistic and kinaesthetic learning for example, is very important. The class must be taught in a way that allows all types of learners to flourish. All my classes are kept small with numbers kept below 10 if possible. My system of learning is to have more classes with lower numbers in them, that takes in consideration of age, physical skills and the type of learner the student is. Teaching in a positive learning environment is as important as earning or wearing a black-belt
I have a level 3 teaching certificate. This qualifies me to be able to officially teach in learning establishments, local education facilities and colleges.
