Re: When Can an Instructor Stop Training?

Of course the answer to your question is never; with one proviso. Some instructors I know have had to stop "training" as a result of medical advice but that does not mean their contribution is any less valid.

There is though a lrge proportion of senior instructors who simply will not train and I think that this is either e reflection of their insecurity (are they still physically capable?) or a wish to preserve the instructor mystique (I teach but do not learn). Either way leads to stagnation.
