“Good teachers guide you to discovery, poor teachers tell you what to do.”

That is a wonderful statement. I’ve never heard the teacher/learner scenario put that way.

I’ve recently embarked (no pun intended) and a new career: dog training. (Also one of the reasons I can’t afford SDTS classes!) and that line exactly represents the proper way to train a dog. You can scream, yell, pull, jerk, contort the dog into what you want him to do, but if you guide him into what you want him to do and let him figure it out, he will learn (faster) and be much more happy and willing to keep doing it and learning more.

Well, I know this post doesn’t directly relate to self defense, but your last line in your post will be my mantra for all my future clients.
