Musings, ponderings and various observations on the intersection of BJJ/Martial arts training and the living of life. I have no inclination toward either political correctness or correct spelling. This blog, such as it is, remains fundamentally an unfiltered gush of thought ... both raw and unpolished.
I know many people who are absolutely world-class in their chosen field, with absolutely no idea of how to convey their understanding and expertise to others. Doing and teaching are two different things - sure they can overlap, and in rarer instances, they can overlap nearly completely, but this is rarely the norm. Being able to effectively reach or instruct is a skill in it’s own right, one that deserved to be constantly honed and developed; just like any other skill. An effective teacher nurtures; uses words, imagery, imagination, analogy, inspiration, demonstration, tone, body language, comedy, passion, experience, story-telling and hundred other tools to arm students with understanding and skills they previously did not have. - JBW
