comment Established “curriculum” for MMA?
In that case, since the world of MMA is new in Germany, teach them things.. Pick one thing, possibly ground fighting, that will give them an edge. You'll have to adapt your curriculum as the opponents learn your techniques, and over time, you will have fine-tuned a curriculum that matches what you want and helps your students win competitions.

comment Established “curriculum” for MMA?
It depends. What's your goal? The problem is that there's a kind of conflict of interest. MMA is Mixed Martial Arts. To some extent, I doubt that two MMA schools anywhere will have the same curriculum. Do you want to teach for competition? For self-defense? Ask yourself these questions, and hopefully you'll find the answer you're looking for.

@Rophuine Sensible, no doubt about it! As I said, not what I would do, but that's because my body has been trained to do different things :)

comment Should I train differently to spar guys who are bigger than me?
Absolutely. That is how I spar taller people and they hate it.

comment Value in Practicing Spinning Kicks
"In that case, you are naturally inclined to withdraw the upper body and counter-attack with the big muscles in your legs" -- That's not a _natural_response. It's a trained one. It's certainly not what I would have done when I had no training, and it's not what I do now, because it's not the training I received.

@Aristos, I respect and understand what you are saying, but for some things, THERE ARE NO SHORTCUTS. Not until we enter the Age of the Matrix and we can do high-speed, intensive training of the neurons and nerves.
