I was reading comments in the Caroline Zhang thread re CZ, Vanessa Lam, Yasmin Siraj, etc. and was ready to post there, but thought a separate thread might make this more interesting - Why do you all think a coach permits a pupil to learn bad technique? 1. Physical limitations: The pupil is limited and can't handle anything beyond whatever gets them to rotate? 2. Coach tries to teach, but pupil doesn't listen? 3. Coaching is bad, takes the money year in and year out and pupil suffers Something else???
