    there are two boys in particular - both about 8 or 9 years old.. basically they act up in lines for drills, looking in the mirror, walking through forms, talking out of turn, low kicks.. then - after an Instructor confronts them - they're okay for about 30 seconds and then start up again...

    How to rapidly learn a martial art?

    When you're in class, absorb as much as you can.. but I wouldn't recommend worrying about 'progressing fast'.. hard work, commitment, consistency.. these are paramount. enjoy the time at each belt and build your foundation
