Re: Is it proper?

it may also be he does not understand the value of feeling rather than watching/telling--so perhaps worthwhile to reply to his verbal critique by sincerely asking if you may "receive the technique from him slowly in order to be sure I'm understanding what you mean?"--in my experience, it is always well recieved if these things are phrased to imply you are a deficient learner, *not* that the other is a deficient partner or teacher!
