    I don't believe that anyone is suggesting that one should replace training with teaching, that's kind of an absurd assumption to make.

    There are no secrets, Pauli, only work.

    Kidspatula: fencing requires some very hardwired reactions. When you coach, to an extent you dilute those reactions by intentionally making the mistakes upon which you want your student to learn to capitalize. It's a specialized case that does not really apply to the m.a. world at large because of the significant differences in pedagogy.

    When I taught (Shotokan... yeah, I know!) I found my kihon techniques improved because I had to show the long version of techniques, and pass those techniques on. My stances were good (and utterly impractical), and everthing was rosy in the garden.
    I ate **** sparring though, because I found I was doing ridiculously stuttering kicks from neko ashi dachi and had begun chambering my punches (something I hadn't done in years). I also forgot how to sidestep.
    I'd never been a technical karateka, but had always considered fighting my thing, so it was a shock to find out I'd become sucky.
