I was just reminded to pull out my own notebook and go back through it on some things...which leads me to these questions:
How many of you keep notebooks on your training?
What do you include?
What do you think SHOULD be included?
Has it been useful and how?
Do you go back and review older notebooks?
Those of you that are sensei/teacher/coach, do you use this information as you teach others?
Do you share your information or is it your private resource?
For my part, I include any handouts and my own notes/thoughts on what I've learned or heard in class. I also copy/print off useful information I find on the web or in books I read regarding techniques, training, health/injury, etc. I want to start including my thoughts as I try out things in my own practice on how/why I do certain movements, which i should have been doing all along. Part of that beginner "do" vs "think" mentality, I guess.
Something mentioned in the piece I was reading elsewhere, was a suggestion to record the observations and history that your sensei/coach/teacher mentions in class because these oral histories get lost so easily. What a GREAT idea!
So what are your thoughts?
