I believe it is important to explain techniques with the original indigenous terminology, as difficult it is to learn, it will make perfect sense eventually.

As there might be English equivalents to many techniques, there are still many that are not easily translatable, which can cause gaps of understanding for students.

Principles and concepts that define a system of how it came in to being, its roots, myths and legends are important factors for students to learn and understand as they contain valuable information and knowledge uniquely it's own.

Pedantic teachers can become very boring (as the information can be top notch) as they can lack the alive and dynamic aspects that keeps a student on their toes

As the opposite that teach very fast and seems that everything taught becomes a blur, having the student involved in the process of what is being taught by being interactive with them is not only fun but is also useful indeed for remembering the lesson first hand.

I wish someone would have explained to me when i started that their are rules to sparring.
1. you will get hit and it might hurt.
2. try and learn from each other.
3. accidents will happen its not done maliciuosly.
4. if someone is going too hard they might not be aware of it and so you have to say something.
5. If you dont say anything then its your own fault.
6. respect is paramount to sparing leave your ego at the door.
