There is always Bullshido if you just need to be abused.
Nobody's complaining about it except you.
Well depending on what you want to do and when you want to do it, you might not be able to meet your goal if you're too slow.
Whenever I have a goal, often if not always, part of the very goal itself is to get it done within a certain time limit.
From what I've been taught about martial arts, its supposed to be about courtesy and respect, at least that's what I've been taught where I train in the martial arts, not something that's supposed to have toxicity.

OK, read that. You have set a time frame. So the question remains, have you been meeting your goals?
... Or have you been frustrated by slower than hoped for rank advancement?
So, what do you do when you do not meet your timeline? I have lost a good amount of hair from it over the years but have learned ways to anticipate and handle it. I am still not a nice guy if a knucklehead (or knucklehead reason) causes it.
We do project work quite often so I get being on a schedule. It is our bottom line and reputation at stake sometimes when we do not meet a schedule. But often times you are working off a premise given by the customer and end up being confronted with changes. Navigating them with the customer is delicate work sometimes.
It doesn't always happen, for reasons that are usually out of my control.
Contingency is a major factor in surviving when doing project work.
Man, this thread took a strange turn. Everybody should relax and take care of their own manners.
It's all good. Makes me want to read old Rod McKuen books, like...
Kumbaya, all you sons a beaches.
