Teacher's technique… student's techniques

I first thought of writing something on this theme after realizing that contrary to what I thought initially, there were some interesting differences in the way my techniques were performed and intended according to whether I was demonstrating them as a teacher, or performing them as a student. Of course, for the experiment to be meaningful, these techniques had to be applied on the same partners each time. What struck me most is that the sensation was totally different according to the status I was assuming on the tatami.

Re: Teacher's technique… student's techniques

Ron and I teach and train in every class. I think this helps dispel the separation of student and teacher. It also allows both of us to train with all of our students. There is nothing like feeling a student's technique. It really gives me feedback that supplements what I can see.

Re: Teacher's technique… student's techniques

A nice reflection... When learning a skill the brain is doing different things to when demonstrating a skill, thus the role of teacher or student changes things internally. FWIW Its seems this not just true in physical activities but also in my profession whilst teaching in laboratory it was often noted that teachers had 'magic fingers' that could fix bench electronics just by waving their hands

Integration of training and teaching is gold!
