My Instructor allways picks me to demonstrate techniques with in front of the class. And I have Absolute no idea why. I think im fairly average calibur student. I just wish i wouldnt get picked all the time since i cant see the move right to do it with someone else.

Can you help me out on figuring why this is and why you choose someone to demonstrate moves.

If the instructor picks on you, he believes you're competent..Think of it as a compliment...If you have a problem with being picked, just kindly talk to your instructor..

You may be the right size and build to most effectivly demonstrate the technique. You may also be good at breaking a fall or going with a technique. I find that it is good to be on the recieving end of a demonstration because you get the feel of a technique it also helps me think of a counter.

Maybe your instructor thinks you are competant, or maybe he thinks ure a trouble maker who needs teaching a lesson.

Bet on the former though

As a coach when I keep picking on a player I see that he is ready to move up tot henext leval. I see somethng in him that he don't see in himself. Maybe this is what is goign on.

However he may just like punching, kicking and throwing you too. LOL.

When I did TSD, I used to be the instructor's "dummy" for self defense moves. I was brave (or stupid) LOL. It was fun, I thought. He used me all the time, and I didn't complain (I just tapped out all the time hehehehe).

My TKD school mostly uses red and black belts. But yesterday, my instructor used me and a few other color belts. I kinda missed that It was fun.

The person who volunteers to have everything done on them learns the most in the end.

i like being demonstrated on, it shows me how the person should react to, lets say, a pressure point. and it means my ukemi is being practised.
