a startup idea shared by Mike Simon . Connex.Us on 05/23/2012

Lots of people have learned dance moves they would otherwise have never known without having purchased Dance Central on the XBox 360 and Kinect. The Kinect is capable of making observations about the orientation and form of the body as it moves and adjusts in real time. This also makes it ideal as an instructional tool for Kung Fu, Karate and other martial arts.

The Kinect could be an excellent instructor both in terms of teaching the user various Kata or forms, as well as being a merit based system that would understand and acknowledge mastery without prejudice or reservation. If you can perform the moves with accuracy and from memory, you rise a belt. Additional peripherals such as a punching dummy could be sold as well that would allow the xbox to gauge how hard you can punch and move in relation to a "real" opponent.

This would be ideal for those who want to learn self defense, but don't have the time or inclination to do it in front of a large group of people.
