Through the years, I’ve employed hundreds of hacks to support my Krav Maga training, as well as, to bolster teaching classes where making new concepts accessible to students quickly is of essence.
While I’ve never been accused of being a master of analogies, simple ways of connecting ideas and concepts that most students are highly familiar with (inside and outside Krav Maga) is a powerful way to make something new seem familiar and within reach.
As a student, it’s imperative that you utilize this approach (or others that are similar) to immediately connect with new concepts and begin the process of understanding and exploring. As an instructor, connecting familiar ideas with new concepts will support your students and produce results – making your job easier and the student experience more enjoyable. Give it a try – it works!
