Today Kyle (my student) and I practiced for three hours. We went over so many things. I wasnt sure if he would want to keep training so I threw a lot out there. I covered all kicks, punches, blocks, parries, first 3 throws, grappling, breakfalls, posture, stances, movement excercises. I covered a lot of everything in the time period.

I noticed that when you teach one person you can teach them more techniques than if you had a large class. However, the downfall is that one technique isnt practiced 100+ times with switching partners. The next class I have with him I am just going to do breakfalls, rolls, one wrist escape, one headlock escape, and Kote Gaeshi. I think thats a lot in itself to teach someone, but I want to practice these over and over until he feels comfortable with them.

This guy is a natural too. He says hes only trained in Judo when he was very young, and he quit shortly after joining. He learns fast, and so I dont want to hold him back. Hes already humble.

The only problem I have seen is when I do a technique on him he leads instead of moving when it hurts. I like to make sure the technique hurts or really works because on the street, people arent going to lead into the techniques, they are going to fight with you. But Im sure with time, this will change.
