Of course, as an instructor, you probably have various types of students that fall into certain categories/buckets.  You may have a person who “knows it all” already, the mother who just wants to be more safe and proficient, and the individual that just wants to do something while their kid is doing martial arts.

There are a many type of learners, personalities, predispose mindsets and it is far beyond the scope of this manual to discuss all of these factors that distinguish humans. It is best practice to take people as sovereign individuals and not bucket them or otherwise profile and categorize them. However, without question, we as humans fall into certain categories where the field of psychology can, to some degree, analyze and put forth best practices for modus of learning for certain personality types. Again this topic is beyond the scope of this manual; however, the only personality type I would be cautious of is the “know-it-all”, not because know-it-alls are annoying but in this particular venue we must be concerned of know-it-all, insecure type that compromise safety. Perhaps the know-it-alls know too much to not follow the safety protocol or they think they are soooo special to not follow safety protocols to put others and even themselves at risk. All person types needs to be addressed for best curriculum delivery, but it is best to have special attention on know-it-alls to ensure their idiosyncrasies do not bleed over to compromise the safety and value of instruction for other students.
