comment How can I deal with the impressive number of charlatan teachers in Italy?
Twice a week is maintenance... Three times a week is improvement. I agree with you. This being said, if you're serious about the arts, and come from a competitive physical background, you should be able to train on your own.

.. Or you could do tai chi, which does all that for you in a neat little package.

comment Isshinryu karate - seisan kata - opening move bunkai
Hmm. Does that escape you mention truly work while stepping? I understand doing this for the sunsu opening move (one wrist grabbed, or both) but here, with the hand coming back to the hip, it seems like you'd have to use force to make it work. What am I missing?

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.

comment Value in Practicing Spinning Kicks
@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 :)
