    And yet, even advanced students (age- and grade-wise) are motivated by them. Get rid of them, I say...they're for show offs, especially all those yellow stripes at the end!

    What are some motivation, inspiration or life lesson speeches you discuss in your class as an instructor?

    Yes I'm sure there is, but I might feel uncomfortable if a martial arts teacher tried to give my kids or me advice on motivation, inspiration, or life lessons. I mean look at (****) Kresse. If I discovered they had studied philosophy/moral reasoning or perhaps had brought up well-balance...

    What if the white belt replaced the black belt as the top belt?

    'Slop', however, can be difficult for the inexperienced to assess. When I swing my sword in a kata, newbies gasp in awe. When they then see my teacher doing the same kata after mine, they give me dirty looks!:( :oops:

    I think when one is a fan, you can appreciate the less thrilling instalments of a film franchise because of the deeper understanding you have for the characters and oeuvre of work. For example, Star Trek-The Motion Picture and Star Trek V匈 really like them but most non-obsessives think theyre...

    Nudity? If I were a film maker, Id do my very best to ensure the first of my franchise was amazing to ensnare as many as possible into the sequels. When I go on a first date, I dont wear scruffy training shoes, ripped jeans and go unshowered. Im shaved, I have my Savile Row suit on and...

    Watch out where the huskies go and dont you eat that yellow snow I personally dont think its a combat sport teachers role to discuss such things, but perhaps the role of school teachers and definitely parents.

    You know, Ive never seen any HP films. I did buy the Blu-Ray box set to see what the fuss was about, but managed half the first film and gifted the bo set to my goddaughter. Despite what everyone says, it is for children. Never seen Top Gun either她r Citizen Cane.

    Have you gotten useful advice from a doctor about martial arts training with an injury?

    I see. I thought with the vast amounts of money in US sports, the path of sport's doctor would be very attractive. In the UK it's very small and a new field based around orthopaedics/physiotherapy/psychology. which tend to be populated by other expert practitioners. I have a very talented...

    Have you gotten useful advice from a doctor about martial arts training with an injury?

    Sport's medicine is simply not taught to medical student (in the UK at any rate) since it's considered a specialty that might be studied as a niche post-graduate subject and is rare.
