Certificate II: Lead Instructor Course

Becoming a Lead Instructor for Jin Sei Ryu Karate-Do typically involves a combination of technical knowledge, experience, course work, and demonstrated leadership skills. Here are some steps that an Assistant Instructor might take to become a Lead Instructor in Jin Sei Ryu Karate-Do:

  1. Practice and understand techniques and syllabus requirements: It is usually assumed that our Instructors are very good technicians, and understand the syllabus requirements for their belt level and the students that they instruct.
  2. Gain experience: One of the key requirements for becoming a Lead Instructor is typically a significant amount of experience assisting classes. An Assistant Instructor may have already taught a class independently. This experience may also involve leading training sessions and reviewing material with other students.
  3. Complete additional education: Many Lead Instructors have obtained degrees or certifications in karate or related fields. In addition to earning their Jin Sei Ryu Karate-Do Black Belts, our Lead Instructors have degrees in sports coaching or psychology, exercise science, or child education. In addition, some Lead Instructors have degrees in business, law or engineering. Pursuing additional education can help a Lead Instructor gain a deeper understanding of the other skills required on the dojo floor, or as a dojo leader.
  4. Demonstrate leadership skills: Our Lead Instructors are responsible for setting the tone within the dojo, in the quality of their teaching, compassion for other students, and embodying our Mission, Vision, and Values. Our Lead Instructors proactively assume additional responsibilities on the dojo floor, by coaching and mentoring students, coordinating or leading classes or training session, and maintaining the dojo floor and equipment.
  5. Seek opportunities for advancement: Lead Instructors are keen to develop opportunities for themselves to teach, lead, and operate classes or programs now and in the future. They are keen to participate in the Jin Sei Ryu Karate-Do Instructor Development Program, but completing the course, offering feedback, and actively apply what they have learned. They view the skills and experience they have gain as useful in the dojo, or in other pursuits.

Ultimately, becoming a Lead Instructor is likely to require a combination of knowledge, experience, training, and demonstrated leadership skills. By working hard, continuing to learn and grow, and seeking out opportunities to grow, you can position yourself for success!
