Socrates is often quoted as having said "The only thing I know that is that I know nothing". Actually this is a misquote, he decided that he was only wise in so far as that he recognised that he wasn't wise; as opposed to so called wise men at the time who did not.

I have always thought of students as those who seek. Teachers I think of as those who are sought. But to imply that students know nothing is a bit harsh IMHO.

Ignorance is not all or nothing. Everyone knows something, even if it is very little. Yet even if it their knowedge is vast, no one knows everything. So we are all ignorant to some degree. When we are dissatisfied with our ignorance, we seek knowledge. A teacher is someone who has the knowledge we seek, and will share it.

Which is worse, a teacher without knowledge... or a student who denies his ignorance? Martial arts has both.
