Learning From Students

Students learn from their Karate teacher. However, the teacher learns just as much, or even more, from his students.

There is a saying that you learn 50% when you are taught and the other 50% when you teach. I think the percentages are wrong. They should be about 10% and 90%.

When you see a fine Karate sensei, there may be hundreds of students who helped him to acquire his skill.

Sometimes I will break my class into groups and ask them to analyze a particular movement. I am always amazed when the groups get together and report their findings. I learn so much!
