Re: Martial Arts Instructors Should Learn To Teach

Jon, how is it putting an instructor on a pedestal to expect him or her to have some rudimentary ability to instruct beyond doing a demo? How or why should martial arts be different from gymnastics, history, sewing, or geometry? Do we expect math students to watch a prof solve an equation and then do it themselves? I certainly don't expect my sewing students to watch me make a collar and be able to do anything like it....
