The answer is simple.

Great Leaders passing down their knowledge to the students who want to learn.

Leadership training is vital for the survival of this ancient knowledge.  Every Sensei that has come before us has asked themselves 1 simple question

What makes me qualified to teach these people?

When they find the answer to this question, they have taken steps towards being a Great Leader!

At IJJA Leadership training is at the very core of who we are.  If you have ever seen a Jiu-Jitsu lesson in progress you will see Junior students taking responsibility for warm-up, small group teaching and games.  They are confident in their knowledge and are proud of what they are achieving.   Here’s how we do it.

Great Leaders aren’t born they are made!

We start small:

Young Leader Level 1: Students learn how to take charge of running end of session games and warm up’s.  It’s harder than it looks because we have to make sure everyone is safe at all times.  Managing excited students is never easy, have you been to a children’s party recently?

Young Leader Level 2: Students move on to teaching small groups of 2 or 3.  Students MUST know their syllabus inside out because they will need to correctly teach  basic techniques.  Knowing how to do a techniques is completely different to teaching it to someone who doesn’t have a clue!  They begin to look at learning styles and what makes a great young leader.

Young Leader Level 3: Students learn to take control of a full session (with support)  This involves learning about managing people and behaviour, looking at what is safe and what isn’t and once they have passed their Junior Black Belt it means they have earned the right to stand at the front for the first time and be addressed as Sensei.

What’s next?

So, you have had a glimpse at our leadership training.  It is all about starting small and building confidence along the way.  Before you know it a student has gone from a Red Belt novice to Black Belt expert.  I couldn’t be prouder of the students and the journey they have made

If your child is ready to start the journey towards being a great leader then join our Young Leader Programme.
