An instructor’s attention is always naturally drawn towards those talented individuals who sit at the far right hand side of the bell-curve - but this should never be to the exclusion of those who sit to the left.
As with all things - the closer we look, the more we see; I always feel a great sense of admiration for those who do not find learning easy yet persist in spite of this; inching their way forward - very often going unnoticed by their fellow-classmates.
Effort by those who have talent is admirable; but effort by those who find it all a struggle, is somehow more admirable. Most of us are doing our best; given the circumstances we are in and where we are in our lives - it’s all about ‘moving’ - both on and off the mat. Whether a snail or a cheetah - life moves. JBW
