One of the most valuable things that an instructor can do, especially in martial arts, is get to know his or her students on a personal level.

Not only does taking the time to chat with your students and learn their strengths and weaknesses come in handy for teaching them, but it also allows them to become more comfortable with you.

It’s important for students to feel comfortable with their instructors so they don’t hesitate to ask for extra help if they need it. A student who’s at ease learns the best!
