Critical Thinking, Pedagogy, and Jiu Jitsu

Postby middleway on Tue Aug 01, 2017 6:52 am

Interesting paper some here might enjoy.

This paper argues that training methodologies similar to those used in Brazilian jiu jitsu and other realistic combat arts like Western boxing, Muay Thai,
kickboxing, and college wrestling should constitute a pedagogical core of college critical thinking courses. To make this argument, first, we briefly define and explain “critical thinking” using the American Philosophical Association’s Delphi Report; second, we describe traditional content taught in nearly all undergraduate critical thinking classes and explain why this content may not achieve its epistemological and educational ambitions; third, we discuss the pedagogy, termed “aliveness,” used in jiu jitsu and mixed martial arts training; and finally, we detail how to thematically incorporate pedagogical aspects of aliveness into critical
thinking classes through the use of the “I Method” (Introduction, Isolation, Integration).
"I am not servant to the method, the method is servant to me"
