I doubt that insulting people is going to help people understand your point. I responded to what you posted, if you meant something different then it's up to you to clarify.
Everyone has a starting point. The basis for developing your ability to get past obstacles is simply your current ability to get past obstacles. We all have some ability to get past obstacles, and we can all start from there. If we encourage people to start from a more advanced position then it just means that when they start doing things themselves they have to begin with harder obstacles. That's not helpful.
No, every person so far has understood and agreed with me, except for yourself.
Basics give people the tools to work from in order to advance themselves. If I tell a beginner to overcome an obstacle their way, they'll pick one or two methods, and then slowly perfect and through trial and error, make those couple of movements effective and flexible, and their own. But since I gave them nothing except the drive to overcome, that's all they've done.
If, on the other hand, I provide them with a dozen specific movements, and allow them the time to work on those motions and become familiar with them, they discover the movements for themselves, and create variation upon variation of all those movements, multiplying and then multiplying again their ability to create, innovate, and discover. It's not about discovering for them, it's about using established tools to make them progress faster. Hence my roots analogy. Roots of a tree. The more roots, and the stronger they are, the more the tree can grow and expand in so many ways. The smaller the roots are, the less of an ability to expand it has.
This is a proven method, it's worked for all the years I've spent teaching. It's also worked for countless people on this board. So what is it, inside you, that makes this impossible to accept? That maybe, just maybe, other people have things of value to offer as well, and that your way is not the only way?
That's my problem, here, Dave. Instead of this being a proper discussion where we share and grow, every discussed with you turns into an argument, because you put each and every person on the defensive, because all you do is attack what they do, with the reasoning that your way is better. Why do you think every discussion you're in gets relatively heated? It's frustrating, and tiring! Just have an open heart, man! Share some love, stop being so damn stuck up about your own ways, and accept that maybe other people know as much as you, and quite possibly, more.
