    Kid's summer camp is this week. 10 kids that are diehard about jiu jitsu from 8-12 am. We try to get them dodgeball breaks but they keep asking to drill armbars and omoplatas. The 5 year olds (3 of them) can't keep up with the rest technically but they try their hearts out and are positionally awesome. We've got an airbounce things for break time and we're in there supplexing the 5 year olds and tossing the 10 year olds around with moonbounce fireman's carry.

    I can't believe I'm getting paid for this. :rofl:

    I helped with a kids kick boxing camp once. Kids are fun to work with but every once in awhile you have to lay down the law. Good luck, your gonna see that your going to start getting better from this because when you teach you end up learning as much as the people you are teaching

    I've been teaching women's and kid's classes for about a year now, and teaching combatives to some ROTC guys...teaching is natural to me and I love it. I just think how good and dedicated these kids are makes it way too fun to be a job.

    Sounds like an awesome summer gig. I might get my first classes soon. I'm really stoked about it.

    yeah working with kids who WANT to be there and train is awesome. where I work has waiting lists for most classes, if the kid wants to be a snotnose shit he can do it elsewhere. I have a few kids who are going to be BADASSES when they grow up.

    :werd: I've helped teach the kids clases in the past when one of the other instructors was busy.

    Having good kids is great. There are some of them who are going to be incredible badasses if they keep it up. Having aggrevating kids who can't follow directions or get hurt and cry all the time sucks.

    I have a few kids that used to like to cry when they got beat or barely a bump. I talked to the parents, who assured me that I was allowed to toughen them up. I was nice at first, gradually got to the point where I would just tell them to stop crying slightly harshly or give it no attention, to the point now where if they cry for a stupid reason they do mountain climbers until I get tired. Now I've got a room full of happy, tough kids.

    Sounds like an awesome group of kids. I wish my parents put me in a BJJ class when I was 5 T_T. My parents were always so afraid I would hurt myself, so the only sport I was allowed to play was Football. I guess I learned how to tackle the fuck outta someone lol. Those kids are so lucky and they don't even know it yet.
