Mind and Skills 5

If you want to be a great teacher you need to know reality and the non-reality of fighting.  Both of these must be taught so that students will know how to separate sports from street fighting.  The worst teachers in the world are the ones who teach people crap, the ones who teach people skills that don't work and are to difficult and to make things worst when their students make a mistake they don't correct it, I've seen this.  To counter this ignorance you need common since to see that what your doing is obviously not going to apply in street combat.

The reason crappy fighting is still being taught is because the unnecessary parts of each style still exists.  I can't believe no one has removed these fancy forms, attacks, and rituals yet there all a waste of time, energy, and money they should have been extent after the creation of JKD.  Another part thats unnecessary are the names of each style you don't need them you can only be called a fighter nothing else.

The great mistake a lot of teachers make is they don't teach reality, they don't teach people what usually happens in the streets when you get attacked or what can possible happen like for example they will try to teach you how to fight multiple attackers and with one person attacking them at a time in real life no one in a group will wait for one of their own to finish before they come in to attack.

A true teacher is one who keeps learning by studying the world through violent footage, and studying books, DVDs, and people and absorbing everything and sharing what they found useful.
