as an instructor or trainer or coach, how do you work w/a guy who doesn't do things the exact way you want or maybe has aspects to his game you don't agree w/; wether it be the application of the tech taught, maybe tech he/she mixes in w/what you have taught, or maybe their philosophical approach to what your teaching. i ask this cus you see guys like roy jones jr, keith jardine, emmanuel augustus, nick/nate diaz, muhammed ali; im using pro guys as an example, an all their coaches are legit guys..fundamental and technical. Yet their students have shown rather unique, unorthodox application of said tech, either cus of their physical ability, physical limitations, mindset or whatever. I mean none of us does things the exact same way; but some of us do things quite differently, wether it be the art as a whole or certain aspects of it (clinching, punching, kicking, counters, offense, def, entries, exits) guys like naseem hamed, were trained in an unorthodox manner; so they don't count, the same for kikuno or machida, who were trained in a manner that supports exactly how they do things. but for guys who are tech-fundamentalist, how do you balance this out, how do you handle this; is it based on how effective the guy can be doing things his way, do you just try to clean up or tighten up what he does, do you try to impose your way on him, do you balance him out w/ off-def that supplements him. alot of trainers i know try not to tinker too much, instead seeking to find out why the guy does what he does, how it works, what is good about it, what is bad; an then try to strengthen his all round base so as to make things more effective. But i wanted to know what you think. thoughts/opinions also for the forum, we all train; so have you had trainers and coaches really revamp your style or things of that nature or did they try to work w/what you had and go from there.
