Re: Things to Tell Someone Working with a New Student

15) Don't get cocky. The most dangerous person you will work with is a novice, because they don't know what is happening and they might hurt you unintentionally. You need to be able to protect yourself as well as protect them.

16) You were a beginner once too.

17) Let them (the new student) determine the speed of practice
