Please ask him to read any of the posts in the medical sticky on this techniques form ( it is at the top of the page ) and if he wishes to ask any questions about why wrists should be " straight as possible " then I am always happy to share any information or advice and can be contacted here on TB or via E-mail.
Thankyou Fergie, I will take your advice and explain the issue with my teacher and show him the medical facts on TB. Hopefully he will come around and let me use the moveable anchor technique, if not I have just found another bass teacher in my area who seems to have lots of experience and uses the moveable anchor technique too.

I see what you mean Lobster. While those other things are great, at this point having someone who can teach me bass well is of most importance.
I really appreciate all the responses guys, I was anxious about this before you all helped :-)
