Instructor Development Program (IPD)
"Tour Of Duty"

Following Mr Anslow passing the Level 1 Martial Arts Instructor UK
course (with a 95.6%pass mark) the Academy Instructors program has
aligned itself with the CMAA instructors Program. For more details,
click the image to the right.



The IDP (Instructor Development Program) is designed to enable students to develop the necessary skills associated with teaching martial art classes. They are not so much technical based (as your level in this area is dictated by their current grade), but rather to learn how to manage training and the problems associated with teaching and running classes for both adults and children. The Instructor Development Program is free for all students.

Students are required to partake in the IDP at any point from blue belt onwards (adults only) as part of their requirements towards their black belt. Students participate in the Instructor Development Program for a minimum of 6 months continously (weekly) though many continue on after the minimum period to improve their teaching skills.

The minimum time required for a Level 2 certificate is 6 Months (though 1 year is advised) and the majority of IDP training takes place within the children's classes. This is simply because teaching children brings up the most common problems and thus allows skills to develop around this. Occasional teaching/tests also take place in the adult classes but the actual 'time on course' is  measured by regular attendance in the children's class. Within this time each student must learn/demonstrate confidence and ability in the areas listed below (these may be required on more than one occasion to gain confidence). Upon completion in both time and associated areas, the student is presented with a certificate and verified via the Academy web site.

Though many associations offer 'instructor courses' at a cost of around 150. The Rayners Lane Academy courses are not designed around money (as they are free) but are designed around experience i.e. you need to do it, to experience it and thus learn from that experience. Those that participate learn things that a 1 day course cannot and will not teach them, as experience is the best teacher of all.

Level 2 IDP course requires the completion of the following components:

Fitness/Warm up, stretching, Patterns, Sparring, Technical teaching (non patterns), Destruction, Equipment training, - Teaching Beginners and Teaching Senior grades. As well as demonstrating ability in teaching a full class via a lesson plan and an 'On the Spot' class (without prior warning).

During their IDP they must demonstrate 'Control and Authority' to learn how deal with the different types of students and spot quickly and deal with problems before they arise.

Before the Instructor Development Program was organised and structure better it was originally termed simply the 'Tour of Duty' and was the best way for all students (rather than just the most senior) to gain experience in teaching as Mr Anslow did prior to setting up the Academy. This program has sinced been formalised to enable those that participate to be certified and validated by the instructor.

Becoming certified in this program means not only the faith, blessing and acknowledgement of skills in teaching by the Academies Chief instructor but often leads to positions teaching both within and outside of the Academy, many of which can earn the student additional incomes.

A level 1 course is even more in-depth.


All adult black belts at the Academy are either Level 1 or Level 2 certified (see above), and most adult red belts are Level 2 qualified or taking the course. Juniors (Black, red & blue belts) take the Level 3 course known as the cadet Leadership course.
