Re: How serious a teacher are you?

Hi Dave,
At the risk of straying off topic which is not my intention here are my thoughts on this. Serious students & teachers have at least one thing in common, they go through life learning & teaching at the same time. Hopefully we learn through our successes, but most often it's thru hard knocks & it is this that can give us opportunities to teach. People notice how you deal with negative situations, or any situation that makes you stand out. When I look back I remember those unofficial teachers that taught me by example, How they treated their spouse, children, the people they worked with. The serious student & teacher for me are the ones whom I continue to learn from when we are off the mat & away from the Dojo.
Thank you, Reg.
