Rule Reminder: At each belt level, we expect you to display improved speed, power, and accuracy on all of your previous material. It can take time to develop these skills, so don’t get impatient with yourself! Come to class, work hard, and with time, the rest will come.

Weekly Challenge: Practice ALL of your OLD forms this week. If you need to, make a list and check them off!
