No I wasn't suggesting that Brian can't teach 3 axel. Adam should have gone to a proven tech coach to practice 3axel so he would know it's "him" who just can't do it. By going to Brian, I think Adam would always have some douts because he hasn't really coached anyone with that jump. I know Brian has one of the best 3 axel but like you said being able to do the jump and being able to teach the jump is totally different. I think jumpers like Adam would make a better coach because he struggled so much on jumps that he had to work so much more harder. Someone like Midori, the jumps came so natural to her, I don't think she had to work much hard.. she probably wouldn't be a good jump coach because she was so gifted physically that she probably wouldn't understand struggles that Adam's been going through on 3axel. I am guessing Midori would tell him to just jump higher! Yeah I agree that Brian is still learning. He will be a better coach for sure.
