Coaching questions for students and Coachs ...

Post by kajmk »

I hope we get some feedback on this.
Answer as you see fit, add accordingly.

This may be a work in progress.

As a student -
How did you find a coach, distance traveled for lessons, approximate location, fees, were you surprised with anything, were you satisfied.

As a coach, what are the most common things you work on, do you have trouble convincing the students what their priorities should be. Words of wisdom.
May all beings everywhere be happy and free,
and may the thoughts, words, and actions of my own life
contribute in some way to that happiness
and to that freedom for all.

As a coach, I start with technique, and the fundamentals of footwork placement and cadence, a straight swing plane, a stable upper body and 'modern' timing. Many want to start with the release, but I won't get to that until their fundamentals are sound.
