I heard it once said that there are teachers and there are fighters. Can a great fighter lack the ability to be a great teacher and can someone who lacks the skill of a great fighter be a great teacher of martial arts? I've met a few great fighters that all were great teachers but never the other way around. Has anyone ever known a great martial arts teacher who was never a great fighter?

Excuse me for coming in late to this discussion...

>>I've met a few great fighters that all were great teachers but never the other way around.

I may be dense, but isn't that the same thing? It all depends on what developed first, the teacher or the fighter.

Okay. I'll be quiet now and read this thread from the top.
