On March 11th 2017, Jan finished his training at Aikido Nederland by passing his practical exam. He is now a by the NOC*NSF governmental recognised assistant aikido teacher level 2. During this training at Sportcentrum Papendal he followed many practical and theoretical lessons, e.g. didactic, anatomy & physiology, aikido history, injury prevention, kyu degrees, First Aid for Sports and children and youth aikido. Furthermore he got lessons in: How to make a teaching plan? What are the different learning styles? How to give and receive feedback? And, more important, how do you as a teacher make sure the training is safe? Jan, congratulations!
