Re: Beginner Teacher "Survey"
Just my opinion but...
A good teacher at any level must be able to demonstrate the waza. I think that a verbal explanation is not required, but good verbal ques are a must.
"If one is directly taught by his master, it is said he will not become better than his master. It is better to just watch!" A quote by Naotaro Nagao, a Ukiyoe Artisan, regarded as the best woodblock master in Japan.
My Sensei tells me I am good at teaching Aikido. As I live in Japan, I tend to rely on demonstrating rather than explaining.
Just my opinion...
