What Makes an Instructor Good, Bad or Great?

 

Poppa Rotzee:

To you, what separates a bad instructor from a good instructor, from a GREAT instructor?

 

Draculino:

Bad teaches you bad technique and don’t inspire you. The Good teaches good technique but does not inspire you. The great teaches Great Technique and Inspire you everyday to be a better person.

 

Poppa Rotzee:

What are some common mistakes NEW instructors make when they first start teaching.

 

Draculino:

They tend to teach only what they do best. They don’t know that someone’s BJJ game varies according to lots of factors. So a good instructor have to be able to show all the facets of BJJ not only what he likes to do.

Poppa Rotzee:

What do you do differently that causes many people to consider you one of the “Great” instructors of our time?

 

Draculino:

First of all I never considered my self great in anything. I am just a hard worker who have the real and genuine desire to make my students better than me. If in the process people recognize that, great. It is a consequence of my work.

 

Poppa Rotzee:

As someone who likes to constantly improve, you must know where weakness, what is something that was hard for your to learn or for you to do while on your path of becoming a great instructor. (Example: some people may have hard time speaking in front of people, some people may know how to do the techniques, but not know how to explain them to other people…etc, what was yours)

 

Draculino:

Mine was to keep the class going for very long after it was time to be finished…..But now I stopped that : )
