Matt,

Do you think the I method can applied to learning in general and not just martial arts skills?

I tend to be too theoretical in my approach to life and I have been trying to get more efficient in my approach to learning and pondering things.

I know this probably comes off a bit vague, but I was wondering if you have any opinions on using the I method in life or any comments about learning in life.

Absolutley. I have had a lot of corespondence over the years with teachers of various topics, from math to languages, all of whom use 'I' method and similiar teaching methedology.

Just curious, did you come up with the "I" metod yourself? Also, how could it be applied in for exampel math or languages?

 It's a description we use that explains a very common learning process. It can be applied in a myriad of ways, but the basic three step model fits perfectly with language immersion (as one example).

Matt,

Sounds good. I am going to experiment with it in some areas outside martial arts.

Do you still read Krishnamurti's stuff? Any othere books/readings you recommend for improving the thought process?

Thanks for your time.

I'll always be a Krishnamurti fan. As far as books go, one I like is called 'teaching as a subversive activity', it was published in 1969 and includes several really good ideas.

I've used the I-Method to teach my nephew basketball for about two years.

This summer he was the best player and starting point guard on an eight grade all star team playing teams from all over the NW.

He was in seventh grade...
