Hello Ed_Morris:

Welcome back!!!!

I cannot conceive of being the martial arts teacher of my own instructor, that would have to be a different parallel universe, literally. Myself I wonder what a 62 year old wants to now learn of an old friend, their art...?

There is nothing wrong with trading UP, if we know why we do/teach the things that we do. If I do not understand why I use a makiwara, the stance training... and just remove eithert\ becuase it seems superflous, old and a dead tradition solely... that causes a problem... IMHO
