I chose to interview my old kickboxing coach from UMA Port Coquitlam. He is truly an extremely hard working person who has taught me so many valuable lessons. Martial Arts are my passion and I wanted to see what he had to say about being an instructor.
Why are you so passionate about your job?
I started doing kickboxing when I was young and it slowly became my life. I eventually started coaching small groups in different martial arts such as judo, taekwondo, and jujutsu. Eventually, it moved into more and I realized I wanted to turn my passion into my job but I did not want to teach either of those 3. So, I eventually opened up a studio for mixed martial arts and kickboxing which literally had everything from fitness courses to boxing days. My friends started joining me and I got costumers. Its been 15 years and I still am glad to own this place every day.
What obstacles have you faced to get you where you are today?
I had to sacrifice a lot of money just to hope this studio came together and at the beginning, it was tough putting all my money into it but it was worth it.
What advice would you pass on to someone interested in what you are doing?
I would say to not be afraid and to show everyone the way you want to do things and the direction your studio should go. Find a good place with good people and make sure the bills and money are adding up to what you can afford.
Would you be open to further contact from Riverside students and if so, how can someone contact you?
Our studio has a website with our contact information on it where the students can contact me. https://www.umapoco.com/about.html
What kind of things go on in a class?
We offer kids classes and adult/youth classes. The adult/youth classes are an hour long and a half long and twice a week. Some days we do fitness courses with intensive leg workouts and core workouts, other days we practice patterns, we kickbox, we do partner defense and attack practice and a lot of repetitive kick and punch practicing.
What do you have to do to run the studio?
I deal with all of the finances, cashing checks, paying electricity and heat bills, instructing, planning out class programs, deciding who’s going to help teach the class, dealing with parents and their concerns, organizing events like tournaments and testing, but there are many more aspects too.
This interview truly showed me the other side of what goes on in owning a sports place and how truly passionate my instructor is about his job.
*My phone was broken on the day of the interview and I could not get a photo with him because he was in between teaching classes*
My wonder question: How can getting a better understanding of our dreams help us better understand ourselves?
Why/how is your question significant/meaningful to you? I have a huge interest in dreams, sleep, ect. I think it would be very interesting to see how my questions can be answered and to learn about our types of dreams and what they can tell us about our bodies/minds.
Why/how is your question significant/meaningful to others? This question is meaningful to others because I’m not the only one who doesn’t know everything about dreams. It’s a topic that concerns everyone and more people should be educated on it
I have a few sub-questions for my big question:
What type of dreams are there and what are they like?
Is there more than a scientific answer to dreaming?
Could our dreaming be connected to other people and if yes, how?
What kind of things can our dreams tell us about ourselves?
Why do our dreams feel so long and why don’t we understand some?
What research needs to be done? I need to take notes thru the library database and find good resourceful sites for future research with different kinds of information. I need to use many different websites that would cover my all of my questions and different areas of them. Then, I can develop my own conclusions and find a lot of research
Can a scientific investigation/experience help you determine an answer? No, there are many different answers to this question with different perspectives and opinions
Is there a community expert that could be helpful? Not really but I could go to the library to find books for future research. I can also talk to adults in the Riverside building even if they’re not complete experts, they still do have more knowledge and experience with dreams.
Mr. Robinson’s Information Fluency Questions
What questions did you need to research in order to research your topic? I researched the questions “What type of dreams are there?” “What do our dreams say about us?” “Can our dreams tell us about our health?” “Why do we dream?”
What new or familiar digital tools did you try to us as you worked through this project? I used Word for the research template, this blog for the post, the school library database for websites and my research and I used Easybib to organize some of the citings.
What was the process you used to investigate this topic? First, I developed my big question and sub-questions, then I used the school database and a bit of Google to do research for myself, followed by research for the research template (which I had to redo 3 times!). Finally, I developed my own notes and research in my own words.
How did you verify and cite the information you found? I used the library database for my information, the database already has resourceful and verified information. It also cites the sites for you.
How did the process of completing this challenge go? What could you have done better? My research template got deleted 3 times or wouldn’t open. I definitely could have just done it on paper and posted this blog post on time.
For our chili cook off we made a bacon and beef chili. We added peppers and onion and cooked the beef and bacon separately. Our group worked well together since we all divided the cooking. Our recipe had spices like oregano, paprika, chili powder and cumin but it ended up not being as flavourful so we added siracha and lime juice. Our recipe won the cook off and Mrs Keating even brought the whole pot home
