The real thing’s value

The real thing’s value

 

I often recommend my students that they should do a certain thing during a long vacation.

 

It is to experience the real thing.

 

For instance, if you play soccer, you should watch a professional game or,

if possible, take part in the class where professional players coach you.

If you like paintings, you should go to the museum (the larger, the better) or see famous paintings.

 

That is, it is to expose yourself to the person or the world that is called professional or first-rate.

It is full of real sound and sparkle.

I guess most adults realize this. But we tend to forget it in our daily lives.

 

I was on the softball team as a high school student.

Then coach was an ex-member of Japanese national softball team.

(I am sure if softball had been an official Olympic sport at that time, she would have played in the game.)

Our school did not have a softball team.

So my friends and I made a team for fun.

We could not get a place for practice or budget.

Most members were armature and some of them had never played softball.

In such circumstances,

it was rare to be coached by a former member of Japanese national team.

The coach said “I don’t want to coach you if you play in a half-hearted attitude.”

We, at first just for fun, came to devote ourselves to softball over  time.

 

Putting details about our club activity aside this time,

I would like to tell you what I learned from the coach.

 

The coach was extremely stern and saw through what we did not do in earnest.

This was because she had played softball in earnest.

 

And she scolded us seriously.

This was because she had been scolded seriously.

 

She never overlooked our lies or deceitful words.

This was because she had been in the harsh world where you cannot win with lie or deceit.

 

So I see through my students’ “not-serious” attitudes.

This is because I have been always serious about this job.

 

I tell my students off seriously.

This is because I appreciate being told off seriously.

 

I do not overlook my students’ lies or deceitful words.

This is because others will not be sincere toward you if you are not sincere.

 

I have never had cold feet or missed the timing in praising or scolding my students.

Of course I have never read a book telling such know-how.

This is because the coach showed me all.

 

I think that is what knowing the real thing is about.

I am happy if you understand the importance of educating children with the real thing.

Knowing the real thing enhances the ability to tell the real from the false.

So I would like children to have an experience to be exposed to the real thing during their long vacation.
