For my kung fu coaching, I have developed several programs based on what people are coming for to me. Generally, for the Hung Kuen kung fu Curriculum, I use colored stripes as levels (similar to belts) and I adopted BJJ way of having a range of color stripes for kids, but nothing between white and blue for adults. The top box shows a screen shot of a part of my lesson plan, where I remind myself what are the technical goals for the current level (such as what kind of strikes they are learning at this stage).
Except for kids, I teach adults too. So far, there was a demand for two types of training. The first one I would call something like Asia-Combat-Fitness. Simply said, people want to work out, hit the pads, do some self-defense drills, and also learn a form or do some breathe exercise. It is a combination of what kung fu offers and what is a typical combat class for non-fighters. I usually hope this will bring them to the other program I have.
The third one, green on picture, I call by a working title “Complex Program”. This one is much more oriented on detailed technical site, application in fighting, as well as pads, breathe etc. Surprisingly I offer this one the least, but it is the most important one.
For these two adult programs, I again remind myself in the lesson plan what the goals and the contents are, and as you can see, I use shades of the color to note for myself how important/how much present they should be in the lesson.
I have been practicing martial arts since 1999. It became the reason for moving to Hong Kong and it guided many of my life decisions. I am addicted to hung kuen kung fu and MMA. Further blog posts are sharing of an enthusiast.
