Actually, fighting skills do not automatically equate to communication skills needed to teach, or even a deep technical understanding.
Who would you have rather taken boxing lessons from - Mike Tyson the champ or Cus D'Amato?

Understood. The point that I was making is that it is unlikely to have a (technically proficient) "baffoon" that has NO technical understanding of what he does. Can others with less technical skill be better instructors? Certainly.

Cus D'amato may be better. But If Tyson is 'all you can get', I think you'll learn just fine.
