Welcome to the twentieth installment of the MoveMind podcast!
Listen in to our intriguing conversation as Jahred reveals a variety of knowledge gems gleaned from his professional teaching career, such as the 3 level guide; a structure any jiujitsu instructor can use to improve their attendants’ learning. We also dive in to what it means to be the mirror and not the crystal ball, as a teacher, and how to bring a peer-reviewed attitude on to the mats so that practitioners can grade their own work.
Jahred Dell is a professional teacher based in Auckland, New Zealand.
He is a brown belt in BJJ under Pedro Fernandes and teaches at two academies; Tukaha and Future Jiujitsu, and runs the Articulate BJJ podcast.
