    And that's good. Some folks still benefit from external structure. I think that structure is one of the reasons some folks prefer the formality and etiquette of traditional arts. Adhering to rules - by choice - is one way to develop self-discipline. Remember that it's not like the military. This student could have left at any time if they chose - choosing to stay and follow those stricter rules is an exercise of discipline.

    He doesn't want to adhere to the rules. He wants his own rules that are different and (in his eyes) stricter. That can only come from himself.

    What rank will your next test be? Can you detail the old and new curriculum so we can better understand? I get the feeling that at least some of you concerns are subjective and emotional. If we can see the physical differences it will help give informed advise.
