A student may not be able to “know” a concept until much longer after being taught and only “get it” later. This is why many practise for years and then one day realize “so, this is what sensei meant”.

Aren't the "Aha" moments worth the wait?!?

Yes sir I can not argue with that logic because it is absolutely true. Great point!

Not that I’ve really had that moment yet in MA, although there’s been many ah-ha moments, but it’s exactly like when my father told me some things when they was a kid, and now that I’ve got my own kids, I realize “now I understand what he was saying.”

Every night, with whatever I'm teaching, I try to give the students everything I know about the matter at hand.
