If you explain connection to someone, both in you and to them, then let them feel it first outside of a technique and then inside a technique, they should be able to understand it and be attempting to replicate that feeling in short order, a few classes or so.
poor instructions = poor learning, low expectations = low results.
Attempting to replicate it, sure. Actually doing so in a reasonably competent way by 4th kyu? Not in my experience.
