I expect every one of my students do be better than I am when they go through my lessons. I am 49 and have arthritis. Sure, when they enter my class, I can usually outdo them easily.. They are 20-30 years old mostly. I expect them to be better than me at the end, because they are younger, stronger, faster.

I sometimes save some moves for special occasions, and kid them that I haven’t taught them everything, while they are picking themselves up. But eventually they get most everything.

I’ve been put on my butt by my students so they know I am no superman. They use to get scared thinking I’d be pissed. I always get up with a big smile and let them know, “Now you’ve got it”.
