According to Point MMA founder, Willie “Bam” Johnson, “All you need is your bodyweight, mind, spirit and the rhythmic sound of your own drum.”
In segment #4, Bam’s instructors begin with a 12 count rhythmic footwork drill performed to music and then shown in slow motion.
Next they square off and turn it into a high-energy partner footwork drill.
They show you how to do this same challenging footwork drill using a “tape triangle” on the floor, which helps student memorize the pattern.
And finally, they bring the kids out to demonstrate that this drill can be fun and effective for students of all ages.

In his previous Cloning Instructors report, “Game Changer” Chris Rappold of Personal Best Karate shared valuable insights into developing an instructor’s physical abilities.
In Part 2, he focuses on the importance of developing an instructor’s mental and emotional abilities.
According to Mr. Rappold, “Looking at each ability separately helps you ensure that the instructor training you provide is resulting in a broad, complete program that will lead your instructors to great performance in the classroom.”
In his school, he strives to develop the following six black belt principles in his instructors (not just his students):
- Self Control
- Indomitable Spirit
In his report, Mr. Rappold gives you numerous ideas that you can use to develop these same qualities within YOUR instructors.
“The goal is to give your instructors the tools they need to have a powerful impact on the students (and parents) inside your school. Also, it is to help you expand your school’s influence within your community,” he adds.
