Good Study Habits

Category : FC Youth News

Learning is an activity that involves solely the student and the knowledge. Everything or everyone else that may become involved in this process is essentially superfluous—and is potentially harmful as a distraction from the fundamental process.

Kids don’t need your help … What do they need you ask?

Firstly, Good Study Habits

This self—mastery usually does not happen automatically, but it can be learned by almost any student with correct study rules and a good study environment.

While the subject matter, can be mastered with or without a teacher, the student who masters it without a teacher learns something more. He/she learns to teach himself. I give free time during FightClub classes to slowly let the kids develop that self learning aspects that is so important.

So stay tuned for more tips of what to focus on next week!

Kids Don’t Need Your Help … (As much as you think)

Category : FC Youth News

 

I’ve been teaching in one way, shape or form for over 25 years now. I can honestly say that the student who masters a subject on his own learns more, than ones you constantly help. When I’m teaching SYSTEMA at FightClub to the kids I try my best to give them time to practice with there partners. The demonstrations or examples I give are referenced as ‘ideas’ or ‘concepts’. I’m constantly talking about them being creative.  Real-world problems need creative solutions. There is a part of us all that really likes set techniques, hard rules and facts, but teaching from these places has a ceiling. I try to remove any ceilings when I teach. I believe all children should reach for the stars.

“Learning is not a team sport”

Learning is an activity that involves solely the student and ‘the knowledge’. Everything or everyone else that may become involved in this process is essentially superfluous—and is potentially harmful as a distraction from the fundamental process.

Kids don’t need your help … What do they need, you ask? 

Over the next few weeks I will tell you what too really focus on instead.

So stay tuned for much more ….

Youth Program 2020 – Class Schedule Change

Category : FC Youth News

Hey FC Parents and Kids,

Happy New Year!

I have been busy putting together a great year of learning for the FightClub Youth Program in 2020.

Thank you to everyone that gave me feedback about the classes. It really helps’ me understand how to shape the program. I’ve had to make some small changes to the youth schedule of classes. Monday night youth class (4-7 years old) from 6:30-7:15 pm has been removed. I’m just trying to balancing out the three different programs operating throughout the week a bit better.

The entire youth schedule looks like this ….

Youth Classes (4-7) Wednesdays 6:30-7:15 pm & Saturdays 10-10:45 am

Youth Classes (8-12) Tuesdays & Thursdays 6:30-7:15 pm

I hope the change doesn’t cause too much a problem. Feel free to contact me and we can figure out any conflicts.

Remember the first youth class will be on Tuesday, January 7th.

See you all next week,

emmanuel

 

PS – Parents please ensure the kids wear there FC t-shirts to class
