But a balance break will take priority over a wrist break any day in my book.
This is what I understood to be Rupert`s point. I think that he was saying that a wrist break is something that should be understood as well. My experience with beginners, however, has shown that they seize on the easier to understand points to the detriment of the more difficult principles. I try to show and explain the balance break and let them figure out any breakage potential on their own.
