A few weeks ago we were talking In class about how to remember the curriculum. I suggested daily practice. The importance of this discussion was driven home to me during an event where the head instructor was talking about the importance of keeping up with your own training. He was explaining that a couple senior instructors failed a recent promotion grading due to not keeping up with their own practice. November has been a bit of an effort to assist in that understanding that the answers are on the floor and repeating our training. The Student workbook is out and available for you to assist in your notes. Please note that as revisions are made active students will receive up to date copies so write all over it and use it to support your learning.
Some of you have asked for additional time to practice and receive instruction. During the winter ahead we will return to open dojo on Wednesday nights from 7:00-8:00 pm. This means the dojo is open and I am available to ask questions. This is a time of self directed practice with support. In addition to this we will offer Special Saturday training once a month. This will be an opportunity for you to work on anything you would like to catch up or as specified.
Please mark the dates on your calendar. RSVP for the classes are appreciated and you are welcome to request material to be covered. This will be directed training time (class instruction).
