Re: teaching as a student
Have these kids seen this technique before?
How old are the kids?
How long is the class?
My reason for asking: with the typical group of kids in an aikido class (and the typical class length), you won't get very far introducing a brand new technique. You are more likely to succeed if you teach something that they "know" already, but done in a different way -- for example, with a different opening or different footwork, or from a different attack. Not only you are more likely to succeed, but you will be teaching them something more fundamental and more important than a new waza.
