The power of demonstrations

Never underestimate the power of demonstrations as I found out in Gymnastics. I have something wrong with my wrist, which means it hurts to take my weight on my hand when my palm is flat on the mat, so sometimes I end up making my hand into a fist instead. I explain to students that thier hands need to be flat and not a fist, but.......... I have noticed a load of students also trying to do rolls and vaults with one hand in a fist as well!

  1. I think a lot about implicit and explicit teaching and how that effects our students. Wonderful example.
