The Complete Martial Arts Instructor

This groundbreaking work applies modern educational theory and practice to the instruction of martial arts. It contains all the information required for an instructor to plan, deliver and assess learning and attainment, as well as chapters upon teaching different groups such as Toddlers, Special Needs and Senior Citizens.

In addition, the subjects of Equality and Diversity, Health and Safety and Safeguarding Children and Vulnerable Adults are also dealt with, as are some of the contemporary psychological theories that underpin effective teaching and learning.

Martial Arts: Applications in Higher Education
An important new book written by Prof. Charles Spring. In it he explains about the need for higher education courses for martial artists and some of the epic journeys he undertook in order to research and, eventually, develop such a programme at the University of Derby here in the UK. This was a traully historical outcome as this was the first degree of its type in the UK. It makes for a very interesting and informative read and is an important addition to the canon of knowledge available on the subject.
