Sounds like you all succeed in adapting both students and instructors alike! I do very much like the idea of lots of different experiences all in the one place.. I think one aspect I do not recall reading in this thread is that there can be a certain insularity in training not just one art and but one single art in one single place with one single group of people.. On the other hand, I understand how you mean and I imagine it can be frustrating maybe? not being able to do the entire syllabus.. still, from here Tez, it sounds fun in your training hall! I would have such a time with all of those different inputs.. it would be so fun learning some thing from everybody there.. anyway yes I understand how you mean and but I know you do the best by your lot and hey thank you for reply! wishes, JxxxWe can only touch a small part of a style, it would be lovely to have a student in at white belt have them train up to black then carry on as an instructor. We can't teach more than a couple of katas and their Bunkai to people, nor can we teach advance techniques to students from scratch. We do get some senior students in but often from other styles, they adapt quickly but usually it's an add on for them as they usually retain their love for their original style.
On the other hand we do get a wealth of different experiences in from our students, we can all do various styles of roundhouse kicks now lol. There's always something to learn from each other.
