Interactive breakout session
The martial arts exist across the world, from French Savate to Russian Sambo. All of them have unique principles of learning and teaching built into their pedagogical strategies. Tied to these are specific practices, such as the roda (circle) of Capoeira to the kata (forms) of Japanese martial arts. Many of these interactive and formulaic approaches to learning can be extracted from the original military and civil settings to a modern education format. This talk will assess research into martial arts pedagogy and will suggest strategies for use in lectures, seminars and demonstrations as based on this body of knowledge.
