Thank you and yes, it is imo.
I think this is a great way to look at the differences in Jy and MTM instruction.
We saw it in the tlm video challenge.
Jy, even on here, heaps tons of details; way more than a student can use, with
some critical subtle errors..like his classic unit turn....etc..
Too much info is the classic mistake of newer coaches and some don't catch it.
MTM, on the other hand, offers more of a general point in the right direction on
basics, and lets you feel your way a bit, with a big emphasis on avoiding any false info.
