Love this topic.

Back when I used to train my friends, wed do a basic warmup with dynamic movements/dynamic stretching. Then Id get right into kihon. If we werent doing basic kihon strikes and blocks/counters on each other, then we were hitting pads. Id like alternating between the two.

Then it was kata. Preferably, Id have us go through all our kata together (at least up to experience level), then wed pick a kata to focus on. Perform it a time or two, then start picking out the pieces. Starting off slow, then seeing if we could work it up to drill the movements (kata/my own experience permitting) back and forth.

Ending with some conditioning, either partner drills (big fan of forearm training) and/or some calisthenics. If we really wanted to train hard, wed do a combo of something like 5 box jumps, 1 round kick, 5 jumps, 2 round kick, then 3, etc.

Always finished with a good stretch!

We could get this done in 30 minutes if we were pressed for time, or wed go up to about 90 minutes (probably a little less) if we had the time and wanted to get to work.

that is similar to how I did and still would run a class. I always started out with stretching / calisthenics and then into kihon, followed by one steps, or bag / shield work. i always ran a beginners class for white through green belt for heavy focus on the basics, advanced class for all above green would be, well, more advanced...lol... with a 5 day a week class schedule i would incorporate every other day to a more strenuous type workout, cardio wise.
the month leading up to testings would be heavier on forms work and other test requirements. i also had a separate sparring class on wednesdays for those who wished to stay longer and participate. though i did keep the sparring class for advanced levels. under green would be taught sparring separatly in the beginners classes. I am now trying to decide if a HIIT type class would be worth trying to incorporate into a future dojo.
