Gain skills and insights to anticipate and navigate our new world of teaching.

This course is specifically designed for instructors who find themselves navigating this new COVID-Era landscape and anticipating our future as Aikido instructors.

I'll share my teaching philosophy, based on my 40+ years of teaching experience. I'll also share fundamental principles for teaching that apply whether your classes are in-person or virtual, whether your students are young and "on fire" or older and cautious.

Having established dojos in 6 different cities and helped some of my senior students establish their own clubs and dojos, I'll also dedicate part of the course to how to build your dojo's membership.

In every topic, I'll also share what didn't work for me so you don't have to make the same mistakes.

What people are saying...

“I completed Teacher Training Level 1 with Lia Suzuki Sensei in Jan 2016. It was a valuable training that prepared me thoroughly for teaching my own classes. The course included practical teaching time with children, teens, and adults which included feedback sessions to review teaching methodology and learning. I also got to see all aspects of dojo operation and learn how to manage a dojo efficiently with the use of technology. And I found the opportunity to work closely with a 6th Dan AKI teacher and learn more about AKI Aikido and philosophy a great experience. Highly recommended if you want to accelerate your path into teaching."
