Of a Title

Earlier this year, in my Physical and Health Education class, I had introduced myself a bit. Just a bit. I told them that they should call me Mr. Faiz. A week later, students were asked to hand in some task written in their exercise book. I was astonished to see how my name is written on their book. Some did it right but a few failed to spell my title correctly which may create confusion to others especially myself. huuuu

A bit feminine

A bit masculine

Hybrid.. huuu

After that, I have an urge to make my own Stamp, which the main purpose is to cover the insult that I got my students. It gives me sore eyes looking at those books. Although I am not teaching them English, I believe that I am also the person to be blamed. Moral of the story, when you introduce yourself to others, you may want to write your name on the board as well. This is because students may interpret what we say differently.

Perhaps the person who invents the stamp faced the same problem I did..

It is applicable to other stuff as well, including silat. Silat knowledge should be practical. For beginner, talking alone may not usually able to widen one’s knowledge. Their knowledge is depending on the input given to them. They may talk a lot at the end, but can they fight? The best way is the combination of all the senses. The weight on which one should be focused on depends a lot on the skill that one wants to teach.
