The Work and Teach Death March

by Terry 7/18/2008 9:48:00 AM

Last night marked the end of my evening teaching for the week. I am still working my regular fulltime job during the day, and taking my workout at lunch. I still have two classes to teach on Saturday morning, but my evenings are free again. Well, free in that I do not have to be at DMW Martial Arts to teach. I have to spend time with my family so they will not disown me. Last night was the end of the death march. Today and Saturday are like maintenance sessions by comparison.

I have been slowly incorporating material I learned from the 2008 Martial Arts Super Show. I have tried to add at least one thing from every session I took at the Super Show into at least one class. The wealth of info is spectacular. Three good sources of information I recommend, sans being able to attend the Super Show, that anyone can draw from are Kimber Hill, David Kovar and Roland Osborne. Through DMW Martial Arts I have access to various materials from their training programs. The Super Show has been great to help focus me on material I want to add. Part of my death march this week is because I am trying to incorporate material so I will not forget it as easily; hear it, say it, do it. My last class yesterday was the Leadership class. I surprised myself on how much I recalled just reading from my hand-written gibberish. Now it is not only better seated in my head, but I have a class full of students who will remember bits and pieces and hold me to it. If that holds true, I will have succeeded.

I am still happy the death march is over. My voice is raspy from yells, talking over parents and general use. I otherwise don’t talk all that much, as my wife, Karen, would likely and frustratingly agree.
