Re: When Can an Instructor Stop Training?

They can stop training whenever they want to.

Whether they cease to learn, or stagnate or not, is not for me to worry about. If they happen to be my teacher, and I feel I am no longer learning from them, then I'll address my situation as required, but they will always have something to offer someone.

I shouldn't be feeling self righteous if they stop training, it's of no relevence to me or my aikido. We spend too much time in the west worrying about everyone else when we should be focusing on ourselves.



A difficult problem is easily solved by asking yourself the question, "Just how would the Lone Ranger handle this?"
