He had instructed between 150-200 students every week at the World renowned International Institute of Martial Arts (aka IIMA) located in San Diego, CA.
His classes included teaching the 5-8 year old Beginner Sparring classes (Class size 40-50 students). The emphasis on this class was honing ‘Listening Skills’ and ‘Safety’. Since all students are beginners, this is where students are taught to be able to follow specific instructions accurately, so that the students do not end up injuring each other and learn to become comfortable with sparring.
Hayashi also taught the 9-13 year old Medium-Advanced Sparring classes (Class size 20-30 students). The emphasis on this class was ‘Discipline’ and learning ‘Control’. Although the sparring contact became much harder and eventually increases to medium to full contact, students are still instructed to ‘Respect’ each other as fellow martial artist and learned how to control their fighting contact. This class is where students are introduced to competition point fighting, full contact practical self-defense, dealing with bullies and the real application of the martial arts in at school and life.
