ive taught lots of people how to wrestle

in high school, i went to a brand new school. only had freshman and sophomores the first year. NOBODY had more than a year experience (sophomores that wrestled one year at a different school). the coach had 2 years of high school wrestling experience like 15 years before but was mainly a football coach who was just covering until they hired someone (but still stayed all 4 years i was there). i had already wrestled for like 7-8 years so i ended up teaching the practices that i was supposed to be training in. kinda stunted my training growth until i started training at a community college at night after HS practice. but in hindsight, i learned so much because every almost single kid on the team had a clone of my style so i go to see all the weaknesses and possibilities of my game lol.

ive taught people the basics of striking also, but i dont feel advanced enough to teach anything besides how to throw each strike.

I have had a few people I helped learn and refine their muay thai basics. I wouldn't call them full students of "mine" as they still did normal class. Teaching is fun and is necessary, in my opinion, if you are serious about your art. Help those who need it

Short answer. Yes, I can teach someone how to defend themselves, but nowhere near to the degree of a coach.

I meant in respect of being slower to learn as opposed to someone who just learns parrot fashion. I think when you're starting out too many questions can retard your progress. Also it depends on your coach (I've definitely tried the patience of a few of mine!). If you had the ideal coach then I guess it would be a good match with the ideal student.

The guy who said it takes two to tango was right. I could show my friends a few things but they'd have to be willing to listen, apply, and practice what I was teaching.

I don't think teaching my buddy fight stance and the 1,2 is going to do anything if he doesn't practice/spar with it.

I see, and there is such thing as too many questions. But a student who asks well thought out questions, and really wants to understand the "why" may not progress as fast through the basics and fundamentals. However, when it comes time to teach that student the more advanced and technical skills. That same student will be able to incorporate them faster and translate them more effectively in sparring than the guy who learned "parrot fashion". Simply because he learned the "why" vs. just the "how". Most guys with at least mediocre athletic ability can be taught proper technique through consistent repetition, it just becomes muscle memory at some point (i.e: the "how"). But a guy who asks questions and really thinks beyond the "how", will also learn the "why" and when it comes to effective application of learned techniques understanding the "why" is what makes a fighter a "thinking fighter", and a thinking fighter can make adjustments and adapt far better than a pre-programmed one can.

I'm pretty good at training students to win within the parameters of specific sports. Over the years, I've coached a lot of athletes in various combat sports (taekwondo, kickboxing, boxing, sanda, MMA) and they have a pretty good track record.

However, self defense is a whole different skill set because of the unpredictability of the situation. There are so many additional variables that don't exist in combat sports that I personally don't feel qualified as a self defense instructor.

Sure, I can teach techniques that can work to injure, debilitate, or subdue an assailant, but usually when people ask me about self defense I'll just tell them to run or get a gun.
