The most common asked questions I get from people all around the world are...
"How can I learn Filipino Martial Arts faster?"
"How can I get good skills fast?"
Though often times I'll answer, 'by training everyday' there is more too it than that. Make no mistake, there is no other way to develop skills faster than consistent training but, it's how you are training. How are you maintaining and developing the information further?
The number one way to ensure faster growth in knowledge and physical skill in Kali (or any martial arts for the matter) is through teaching. Whether you're teaching classes, a group, private students or teaching yourself, knowing how to teach and what to teach makes a world of difference between practitioners.
As the great philosopher Socrates once said, "the highest form of learning is through teaching."
Being able to look at your art and think about your art like a teacher gives you the advantage simply because you're constantly analyzing questions you would never think of on your own. Each time you teach you're refining your basics, your knowledge and your ability to transfer the knowledge and skills to others. Repetition is king to all skills right? Teaching is how you turbo boost your repetition.
