British Aikido Board Level 2 Coaching Course

Lv2 group

On the 20th to 21st February 21 people from 8 different Aikido clubs from around the UK gathered at the West Midlands Aikido Association headquarters Walsall Wood Aikido Club to cover all 5 units of the BAB Level 2 coaching course. I believe this was the first time to be done in a good few years in this manner.
The course tutors where Frank Burlingham, Sue Ward and Ken Williams. The first day started with Risk Assessments, not only we learned of how to write them but how to apply them practically in our own surroundings. The second unit Coaching Children was lead by Sue Ward who gave a fun and practical look at it, allowing all 21 people to take part and let out the inner child in them selves and use there imagination to create games using random bits of play equipment to help engage children in Aikido. This was followed by the Safeguarding Children unit, which could have been boring but was made very educational and lots of class participation to learn from. The second day started with Fit for Purpose and was lead by Ken Williams who gave thought provoking exercises and class debates to the full on the subject which everyone enjoyed. Followed by the final unit of Communication lead by Frank Burlingham again who lead the class along with bad jokes that made you smile, tales of good and bad communication stories and lots of class debates on the subject. Overall despite it being a long 2 days with lots of information to take in and multiple cups of tea and coffee not forgetting the chocolate biscuits and flapjacks, everybody was engaged throughout and found it a worthwhile 2 days.
