Re: Teaching Aikido - Require Coaching Course?

Just came across this on my return to Aikiweb after a short absence for various reasons (mainly travelling-related)

I find it interesting that some of the comments sem to suggest that Aikido teachers don't need to know how to teach.
Would this be acceptable in any other field?

For example all school teachers go through a training process - the analogy would be I can speak English so I can teach English professionally from basic to expert level; without knowing anything about class mangement etc.
So why is Aikido different?
