We’re going Green?

Published by at 7:21 pm under Training at Home

Well there are two more, that means that training will get serious.  But I will have to add to this post later.

It’s later.

I would like to congratulate Mark and Eric for passing 5th kyu.  In fact I should probably apologize for this point not occurring sooner.

When students are unable to pass the test for their ranks, it’s often failure on my part.  Obviously I have not supplied them with the requisite knowledge which they need for their level.  This is not always the case but it was in the case of a few students whom have been training for some time at the dojo.  If there are skills which students need to have, I must give them a way to gain those skills, that is the bottom line.

I don’t have a time requisite for grading, only skill.  If you have been at the club for a week and have the skills it is time for you to move to the next stage of your training.  Time requirements drive me nuts.  I had that opinion in school, so I will do things different in a martial arts school.

For all the newly graded green belts, training only gets harder from here.  I will expect much more out of you as you aproach your shodan so be prepared.
