Re: Becoming an instructor

I started teaching introductory stuff shortly after gokyu. It was a new dojo. Sensei was Yondan and asked me to lead occasional beginner sessions.
Caveat: I am a professional coach, and had previously a judo shodan

Sensei didn't ask me to teach anything he didn't think I was ready to teach.
