Private Lessons

The private lesson is typically 2-3 students (but no more than 4) and material taught is based on the students’ belt rank. The reason for multiple students in the private lesson is so that the students can work the material with each other. This is where the student learns the material to prepare them for their rank testing, and instruction on practical application defensive maneuvers and principles existing in traditional forms. Students 7-14 also begin to develop personal responsibility through the supervised use of “controlled contact” understanding what it is like to hit and be hit. All private and group lessons are begun and concluded with a short meditation.
