    Hi Roberto !

    Would ya say that taking notes are better than filming?

    I was thinking about taking notes of new moves that my instructor is showing us, but in the same film him might be better!

    So, what do ya thinK?

    thanks again for your great website!!

  3. Hi yangbin.

    Taking Notes is essential! Filming can be useful, but maybe disrespect to your instructor as eventually his stuff may start appearing in YouTube uncontrolled. Not because of you…but because if he lets you film no everyone can. At my school we teach some things I don’t necessarily want some people to see.

    I also know of many students who film and never look over the hours of film. Notes can be easily accessible at a glance. Its all about being able to retain as much as possible and taking notes will definitely help.
