Re: Pro's and con's of asking questions.
Mmmm. Socratic Method. A nice tool to have in the box but with any tool, you need to know when to use it. After a few years on the mat , it can be very useful. I think the time to use it would/could be alot sooner in less nuanced activities than Aikido. Gi waza, I think draws upon this method. But we see that in the upper kyu and Dan ranks. I guess my only beef with the Socratic method is that you need perspective before analysis. We can't think our way to knowledge. Knowledge comes from experience. And it's experience that we're looking for when we approach a teacher..
