Hanshi Patrick McCarthy is a Martial Arts practitioner, instructor, and director of the International Ryukyu Karate Research Society (IRKRS).
You can tell people anything, but you can’t make anyone do anything. I think the idea of showing somebody how to learn seems to be more fruitful in the long run that telling, explaining, or offering what to learn.
