5 Benefits of Teaching Private Lessons

Happy 4th of July!

In the beginning of this post, I said: "In this post, I discuss the 5 benefits of teaching private martial arts lessons from an instructor’s perspective. The obvious financial aspect will not be discussed. Instead, I will discuss several benefits that instructors can derive from teaching private lessons."
