Teach any 15-minute portion of the Seeds kata to another student.
Include 5 minutes of speaking about Radiant Heart, and how accountability, mindfulness and compassion are woven into your everyday life. Offer a universal global philosophical teaching that can apply to each student present in the class. Inspire everyone to offer their highest.
The video process is a very effective way for the teacher to self-evaluate their working knowledge of the Bowspring fundamentals. Teachers are required to review their video thoroughly to see that common misalignments are not submitted in the video presentation. Teachers who are asked to redo a Seeds Kata video because of basic misalignments will have a one-year wait period before resubmission.
