Furthermore, for all of you level III, trainers, and examiners; do you think that this is a appropriate focus?
I am not sure about this approach. While understanding the kinesiology is Ok, I don't think I would make it the focus of my studies to pass a level III exam.
This approach may make you overly technical and more narrowly focused. A better approach might be to concentrate on nailing a students problem with movements analysis and then reducing your answer to the student in as few a words as possible all kept within the framework of ATS.
I guess I am saying that in the workup to the level III exam, I would be more concerned with my teaching in the most concise and simplest way possible. I would think along the lines of core concepts and stepping stones vs how everything works. Save that for the learning after the exam. You can easily lose the forest for the tree with your approach.
This is just my opinion and no one elses.
