Quiz the Coach: Martial Arts

Question by nasiiii

Hey coach, I have started learning martial arts but do you think it is difficult to train without an Asian teacher?

Most teachers that come a different country and speak a different language might have difficulty talking to you in English, but there are other ways to communicate.

Mapping Out Martial Arts

First of all, Martial Arts originated in the Asian countries so consider yourself lucky! Asian countries have been practicing martial arts for centuries… even millenniums, so you can probably assume that you will be getting some top-notch instruction even if you can’t understand things that are being said.

Watch and Learn

If there is some difficulty understanding what your teacher is saying, don’t worry too much. Most of what your learning should be visual. Your teacher probably knows that you have a hard time understanding his or her English, so he or she will do lots of demonstrations so you can see what to do.

Make sure that you are very active in the class. Your teacher should be watching you as you perform. If you feel like you aren’t doing something properly, you have to show your teacher. If you have questions, make sure you show your teacher your question. Perform your problem and if your teacher will find a way to tell you what you are doing right or wrong.

To be learning martial arts with someone from a different country is great a thing! You will learn how to communicate differently and you might even learn something about your teacher’s country and cultures. You will learn some words in another language, some customs about that country, and you might discover that you want to travel there one day. What a great opportunity for you!
