    If you haven't done it, how do you know you won't be any good at it?

    In my case, ABSOLUTELY! We are all by nature, individuals; and as such our body mechanics and innate abilities will vary wildly from person to person. This has also been the case with my students. Now, this does not mean it's always a waste of time to challenge oneself, on the contrary. I was very slow in progressing with certain arts; but accepting this, I managed to get quite skilled in spite of taking more time and work than some others.
