Re: Supplement teaching with books?

Christopher,
What are you describing? Does the instructor read from the books during training? Does he recommend books for students to read off the mat? Does he read the books to develop new training activities or techniques? Is the instructor a qualified and experienced teacher, or just someone who has opened a school and doesn't know what he's doing? It is difficult to respond clearly without some additional information.
