Teaching as a separate skill.
I think alot of time we fall into the trap of seeing a teachers time on the mat and number of years of experience in the the martial arts ,automatically giving teaching credentials. Or another assumption is who the teachers teachers are. Assuming that relationship has given a person an ability to transfer a higher level of teaching. Without any knowledge of the nature of the relationship with that particular teacher or that teachers ability, or let's face it ,willingness to transfer knowledge. It never ceases to amaze me, why that assumption is made. The best teachers that I have found could teach anything. While I have met some really experienced and world class martial artists that would really be better off just continuing their training and living out their lives as really good martial artists. Is teaching a separate skill and what are some traits of that skill? Thoughts?
