I've just spent a slightly frustrating hour with a class of 6 to 11 year olds trying to teach them poomsaes. Some get it straight away, others are struggling with every aspect; motivation "oh no not boring poomsaes again...", remembering right from left, remembering the sequence, getting the stances right etc. Also as most of them only do one class per week, they have forgotten it all by the time they come back to class. I've tried giving them printed handouts so they can practice at home , but these only seem to work for the older kids, and adult students. The same applies to the videos available on the web and elsewhere. Does anyone have some good tips about teaching poomsaes to kids this age, particularly the younger ones? I thought about making a mat with 3 lines on (for the taegeuk poomsaes), so they get the idea of moving from line to line, but this was viewed as a bit too radical by my kwanjangnim, who prefers the traditional approach (watch, copy, repeat...). Grateful for any ideas.
