What fancy stuff do you want to learn?



As a student, we all want to progress to more impressive things - to do the fancy stuff. Sometimes, teachers and coaches get influenced too. They too want to teach the fancy stuff.

Why not? On the one hand the students want it and on the other the teacher gets to show off. Or at least, the class becomes interesting for both.

It takes truck loads of discipline for both to stick to the basics; knowing one will fall off and the other being accused of spending too much time on stuff that is supposedly boring.

It doesn’t matter what you are learning or teaching - golf, music, mix martial arts, reading, riding, driving or marketing – excelling in the basics is the foundation for the fancy schmancy stuff.

Did you get the basics right?
