Pleasantly surprised by my student's notes

Master Chen has always emphasized the importance in writing notes. We should write two sets of notes: one for recording exactly what the teacher said, and one for our understanding at the time. When I read Suz' notes, I was impressed by her ability to remember the points. For the last point:

  • There are always 3 points, if you gave one point to your opponent, then lock/control the other two points

It was definitely something that Master Chen had said before, but I couldn't quite remember what I did and when I said it during the class, and yet she wrote it down. Transmission happened without knowing.

Reading my students' notes helped me understand what they got out of the lesson, and allowed me to make teaching improvements.
