Training with Kids: Harder Than it Looks

It’s one of those things you just assume will be easy: training with a little kind, we’ll say circa 6 to 8 years old. Let me tell you it’s not easy. Mainly because you are trying to maintain a delicate balance: going easy to make sure the odds aren’t unfairly stacked against them, but at the same time you don’t want them to just get away with everything. You want them to have to work for the positions.

So, my hat’s off to the instructors that train with kids and can successfully maintain this balance.
