Power of Teaching
There is nothing better to sharpen up one’s skills and knowledge than teaching another about a subject. At the same time, there is nothing more fulfilling than knowing one has taught another person something interesting and useful. Because of these two reasons, it is no wonder that teaching is possibly the most satisfying thing one can do in martial arts (or in anything). This is not saying that everyone should open a dojo or facility, collect a few dozen students and teach. However, it is saying that everyone can teach another something.
Teaching concepts, techniques, and theories to others creates a higher level of synthesis. For instance, learning how to do a mathematical equation produces knowledge. But teaching how to do that mathematical equation to another requires a higher form of intellect. Although one can learn how to teach, what is the best way to actually learn? It is to teach. Ask any academic teacher what was their most enlightening and educational experience when learning how to teach. Many if not the vast majority will not say specific classes they took, but will say their actual teaching experiences. Therefore, after one has learned a decent amount about a concept or technique they should teach it.
This is one more reason why training partners are so valuable. They become resources to each other, constantly filling the other with knowledge, experiences, and ideas. The best situation is if they each have the goal to learn something new, and then teach it to the other. Therefore, in a month’s time they can double their learning ability through teaching each other new information. Just think if there are three partners, or four. Think of how effectively and efficiently they could learn new things while perfecting old ones. While all of this is going on, each one is getting the chance to teach.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]
