I thought a BB is supposed to be really good at all the basic moves? You should have all those moves down really well so that you can (if you are going to) teach them to lower ranking students as an assistant instructor.

There is always romm for improvement.

Example: Last November at a seminar with ITF Master Parm Rai who is the TECHNICAL DIRECTOR to (Gen. Choi's son) GM Choi Jung Hwa's ITF-C. He was telling us a story where he was warming up in his room that was joined to GM Choi's room and he was throwing some side kicks which GM Choi witnessed. He came in and started making corrections (this is a 7th Dan who was about to give a seminar on TECHNIQUE), he said that GM Choi made him 30 minutes late until he was satisfied with the technique!

Moral of the story, nobody's technique is PERFECT!

true, but it shouldn't be sloppy. there should be some basic understanding that leaves corrections down to little tweaks instead of big ones. that's just my opinion.

...My next question is why is it that even next to black (either brown or red/black) their techniques don't look perfect? I know I am probably delusional about mine being near perfect, but theirs should be. In both the Y and ATA. Even a Tang So do class was the same. I know being a white belt for so long I had time to get my techniques better, but so of theirs are down and out right sloppy. Has the standards changed a lot in 20 years?




Let's go back to "am I or aren't I" to answer this.. You varied styles and schools throughout your training so you never got the wall-paper or the pants-tightenner, but you put in far more training time than many of the junior instructors in these schools. You are looking at near BB and early BB technique from a point of view of a person with a decade of training.

They should be better than what it sounds like, but I am not there so I don't know how bad it is. I do know that there are many students that just do good enough but not good as they can...

So your saying Jeff I might not be as delusional as I thought. Cool. Now all I have to remember is leave my hands out when I am doing the forms.(I think it is good for youngsters, but not us old folks)

I am sticking with ATA, but I am going to be observing my wifes class. I figure if anything new pops up I could learn it. Everything seems to be review, for me at least.

If your blackbelts suck, then that school sucks. There are too many two year blackbelts out there that suck,wonder why? The school is no better thaan the teachers.

I completely agree with this. A school's BBs are like its advertising pitch. Go to a school where ther BBs show great technique and training mentality and all the lower belts and the new guys understand what it takes to be good at their art. If I go to a school and see a bunch of overweight, technically poor black belts, then I for one am not going to respect my seniors. And how can you run a class without respect?
