Yes, but similarly we should think about teaching them WHEN to use some of the tactics we can show them - nobody likes* being called a lamer, and I'd personally much rather any students I teach learn to fight "honourably" so they can get more enjoyment out of a satisfying fight and a clean kill. This isn't the same as never using "cheap" tactics, it's just using them when the time is right, rather than repeatedly trying to get them off and failing apart from the last attempt.

And as for what takes the most skill, the most skilled users switch stances as and when the situation demands it, and know what to use against what type of tactic/player - THAT'S skill, since it requires you to know ALL the stances, not just one.
