Teamwork part 3

Together Everyone Achieves More 

Begin the lesson by asking the students to spell TEAM. Tell them that each letter of team stands for Together Everyone Achieves More. Discuss with the students that to truly be part of a team, we have to work together to achieve our goals, but we must also understand the wants and needs of our teammates and help them whenever we can. By helping our teammates be successful we are helping the whole team to be successful. Just like a chain is only as strong as its’ weakest link, a team is only as strong as its weakest member. So the more we help our teammates the stronger our team will be.

Teamwork part 2

There is no “I” in TEAM!

Begin by asking the students to spell the word team. Do you notice there is no “I” in the word team? That’s because to be a real team player, you have to be more concerned with attaining the team’s goals than you are with your individual performance on the team. Let’s take a basketball team, if one player is always shooting the ball and trying to see how many points he can score, even though he may be a great player, he may cause the team to lose. Five people working together as a “team” can always score more points than one person independently. When we are on a team, it is our responsibility to do our best, but also do what is best for the team to insure we reach the team goals. Ask yourself, what teams am I on, and am I being a true team player?

What teams are you on?

Begin this lesson by explaining the definition of teamwork. 

Teamwork is when two or more people work together to achieve a common goal. 

Next, ask the students to name some different teams. Most of the time they will start naming sports teams like football teams, basketball teams, or baseball teams. Continue by explaining there are many more teams out their besides sports teams. Your family is a very important team, so that everyone works together to have a happy family and life together. Remember the definition of a team is “TWO or more working together to achieve a common goal”. Finally, ask the students to think of some teams that they are on, like everyone in this karate class is a team of basic, black belt training, or masters club members all working together for the common goal of becoming a great black belt someday!

Testing and the Challenge

My instructions to my instructors for this session belt testing:

Testing is nothing more than meeting the challenge. It’s the preparation, the review, the challenge and even the failure that pushes the growth. Present the challenge, let the student rise up to the challenge, they will enjoy the journey, treasure the memory and grow their skill. Teaching ourselves problem solving skills… When we make mistakes we adapt. When we fail – we overcome.
