If you could teach one person (past, present, real or fictional)a MA who would you choose?

I would choose my mother...and teach her Wing Chun and kickboxing.

She has no current level of fitness to speak of.
No skills to defend herself.
No belief in her body (she has given up).
Very poor posture.
No interest in other cultures.

...and other things that I will think of given time!

There are many attributes that she could have gained from MA and that I plan to pass in to my children (currently teaching my little girl my limited knowledge of Kali but using ribbons - will develop this as the years pass for both of us).

So who would you choose?
And why?

Can`t you rescue him?
Or is it a case of having to find out for himself?

Never heard of that. Sorry.
There was only one Iaido dojo in our area and our sensei was dang good.
Where is this located? A website?
Just nosy.
At Sandan I do not have permission to teach.

This is hard

I can't wait to teach my son, he's 2 1/2 and want to give him all the knowledge I have and give him the skills I have too.

But I also want to teach my daughter (18) who is naturally gifted but can't be "bothered" with it, she got to 3rd Kyu before being to busy with her friends
