Re: "Slight Uppercuts" vs "Level Swings" and "Chopping Wood"
If X is able to be taught , then all can do Y.
Not all can do Y.
Therefore X is not able to be taught
The error is in line 1. While technically the 2 premises reach a valid logical conclusion its not sound bc, it has a false premise.
It is assuming that if X is able to be taught = everyone must be able to do Y. I gave multiple examples that discredit that line of reasoning. Thousands of things are able to be taught that not everyone can do.
