When I was coming up, all my instructors and coaches were men of experience. In todays time, I see a lot of younger coaches. Not saying a young instructor can't teach. But I see guys with little experience trying to teach. I always figured one hand to have a lot more experience than me to show me anything. If you were choosing a surgeon, you would ask to be referred to someone with experience over the doctor who is doing it for the first time. You should treat your training the same way. Now, I'm not saying that you can' learn from a young instructor. They just need to a really good and unique if they don't have years of experience.
