    Re: Krav and the OOSOFSBNA?

    Life is good! I’m walking more and by the New Year I hope to be stable enough to return to class. In the interim I get to read about CrossFit and start the ButterCup level workouts. Still not sure about the Zone diet yet, but in good time perhaps.

    With the discussion about becoming an instructor mostly quiet, I wanted to add a few closing comments without, hopefully, stirring the pot. This wasn’t the first Krav website and discussion area I looked at, but after some study it is the most actively useful and generally the friendliest. Folks here tend to be clear writers and though a bit blunt occasionally, no one has gotten stupid. We are discussing a contact activity, sometimes our egos make contact too. It’s a part of life.

    While we agree to express our opinions, we probably don’t all share them. Such is the case with any training partners I happen to have. If you train with me and you see me doing something stupid, feel free to say so. The instructor, no matter how good, cannot focus on every student at all times. The early stages of learning a bad habit, like dropping my hands or opening my elbows, is when I want to fix it. Not after it’s ingrained at the sub-conscious level.

    Ryan’s scheduling of an Instructor apprenticeship seemed like an opportune time to challenge myself to learn the proper techniques so that I could return good feedback to my training partners. That way the improvement wouldn’t be one sided. I really wasn’t aware of the cardio requirements to be an instructor, nor am I aware of the proper level requirements. It was a good idea for a goal but didn’t work out. I’m setting my next goals and have started working on them.

    Part of the final stages of my goal setting will be discussing them with Ryan. You may correctly assume Krav is on my goal list for 2008! When I walked into Ryan’s school I did a lot of observing. His body language, the demeanor of the kids who were in class, how the staff treated each other and people off the street, the state of the facility and non-workout areas, parking, lighting, language used, student attentiveness, and parental perceptions of how the kids were being handled. I had already studied Ryan’s on-line “personality”, and his school reinforced my first thoughts, that this could be a positive experience. That has held through the classes I’ve taken as well as the ones I’ve observed.

    I’m having fun here, and learning. Look forward to more of both in 2008!
