In the past, instructor training usually consisted of finding a good student and saying, “here is your class, teach it." Being a good student with good skill, although important, is not the main factor in becoming a good instructor.
The First and SINGLE MOST important quality in an instructor is a Positive Attitude! If you don't enjoy what you are doing, your students won't want to stay around you for very long.
Second is skill – not just skill in the proper execution of martial art techniques, but in the ability to teach and motivate yourself and others.
