This photo well describes how I try to teach judo and being human to my judo students. A high belt value is irrelevant if you behave like a****** on tatami and outside of the dojo. Fear is not the same as respect. Respect should be earned by other people. Every coach should think about what emotions she/he wakes up in his/her students. Do you teach through fear or through joy and respect? Each coach should also understand the difference between one-way and two-way coaching. In one way coaching,the coach's vision is the only right one . In two-way coaching, the coach and the student learn things together. My way is two-way. My students make mistakes in techniques I teach,but often their mistakes makes my eyes open to possibility of making same technique differently or even better suited to them. I am so proud of my multicultural group. These women are awesome, skilled and talented. We laugh a lot of together and smile after exercise. It is a great honour to be their coach.
