First, I personally find it sad when a physically unfit person claims to be a master of ANYTHING. Whatever it is they've supposedly mastered (including those that have), being in good physical condition would improve their function.
Second, in total contradiction to my previous statement, why do MArtists have to be physically fit in their later years to be good instructors. Many older boxing coaches have almost no physical conditioning, and teach by instruction, not by demonstration. And yet they are regarded as some of the greatest boxing teachers.
I will not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. I will face my fear and permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone, I will turn my inner eye on its passing, and where it has gone, only I will remain.

True, to the second statement. But very few high-level boxing coaches look like Marlon Brando after a bender, either.

Your right...I should demonstrate no self control over my body condition and should let my ability go down the drain.
I feel if your going to teach you yourself should have a good amount of skill. Now of course it is not required but would you take nutritional advice from a fat person??? Bodybuilding tips from a skinny guy??? Running tips from a guy with no legs???
Now sure they may know tons about it but credibility comes with ability.
Lead by example

And you could say..well the fat guy could have once been thin...skinny guy could have been buff...and guy with no legs used to be a runner...and the legs one isnt the best example lol...but like i said you should lead by example

Ever seen Lou Duva? And how many professional football coaches ever played pro football, not many.
But in the martial arts world, I would agree with most of you. But would also warn appearances can be decieving. I have seen guys that looked like fat tubs of ****, kick higher than I can and do things like a full standing back flip. Those guys are a rarity, but they do exist. Most of the time though, what you see is what you get.
