Brad, clarification: I was asking on student's reaction to the questions, not claiming they can't be able to do it. FWIW, I remember participating in arguments of the sort "martial art vs. dance" soon after I began training. I'm sure my "insight" was extremely naive. However, I can see how such assignments may motivate certain students to a deeper exploration of the art. Others would probably prefer a "shut-up-and-train" attitude - just a matter of taste, IMHO.
