Re: Talk or not to talk?

I think when your fellow student is really stuck it's ok to give them a hint.. often it is just one small element they need to correct which makes the difference between technique failure and success.

Obviously if the student gets up and draws a complete blank on the technique, Sensei needs to step in asap and go through it again with that student

'Fine-tuning' is also best left to Sensei, if the student has basically 'got' the technique but just needs some polishing
