Bragging rights go to Karlee for completing the Ladder of Legs Challenge today during our Aiki-Fitness class this morning.
Starting at 10 reps and 1 burpee and 30 rope slams or 10 ball slams, she made it all the way (by 10’s) to 100 reps, 10 burpees and 30 rope slams. Her smile and sense of achievement at the end says it all. Well done Karlee 😃👍 #aikifitness #aikifit #aikifitlife #fitness #martialartfitness #westcoastaikidoacademy

A martial arts instructor should not only be a coach but one who is there to guide students in the ways and traditions of budo. He/she should be just as proficient and comfortable communicating with students (and parents) as with teaching the physical skills of their art. A great teacher should be able to weave the philosophy, history and skills of their art into every class that they teach. This is what separates the average from the exceptional and helps develop well rounded students who understand their role in promoting the traditional Martial Arts.
