WYC 064 – Martial Arts World Champion - Melody Shuman - Developmental Stages by Age
Well I hope you’re ready to kick some butt this week with martial arts world champion Melody Shuman. I met Melody through a mutual friend in Kevin Jans, who actually featured the WYC podcast in his TEDx talk, which is very cool in itself, thank you Kevin. Kevins kids are taking martial arts, and he told me about this awesome instructor who is running the gym where they’re at. Melody is a martial arts world champion. She started and ran a successful chain of martial arts schools, then re-invented her entire business and has created a booming business teaching martial arts, and teaching others how to start their own schools.
The huge ideas I took from this episode involve teaching kids appropriately according to their developmental stage and age, and Melody has done the research and done an incredible job in defining these stages. I hope you enjoy her insights and stories!
