My point is that some people will spend 55% of their time talking and 7% of it feeling. I don't think that will work terribly well for most people although I suspect that some would love it.[/b]
As I wrote above, I tend to show with my body rather than show with my words. I personally dislike it when people do a "data dump" onto me regarding a technique. Let me feel it and let me work on it...

Another reason why I prefer the "shut up and train" method is that it teaches people how to feel the other person. If you can't feel what the other person is doing with their body during a technique when you're uke, then how can you hope to do the same as nage to affect them in an effective manner?
