Pedagogical Approach

Pedagogical Approach from Sensei Katanishi

Pedagogy is defined simply as the method and practice of teaching. It encompasses teaching styles, teaching theory along with feedback and assessment.  When people talk about the pedagogy of teaching, they will be referring to the way teachers deliver the content of the curriculum to a class.

Coaching Resources

Sensei Katanishi

Sensei Katanishi has provided a method of teaching Judo that allows coaches to deliver short, simple lessons that allow students to easily master the movements required to build technique and the skill to apply them. By downloading the free app from the IJF and selecting the pedagogy videos from the main menu, then selecting the ‘Technics’ you will find a fantastic selection of videos which gradually build each technique. This is a fantastic resource for all coaches and judoka alike.
