10 yrs.....good question.

In 10 years I'll be 42....

If the body holds up, and time as well, I should have attained a black belt in Modern Arnis by then... As secondary goals.... A black belt/sash in Wing Chun and a mastery of the Katana.

I've always had a desire to master the sword....

Nowhere in particular.

Like Mr. Hubbard there are other arts I'd still like to sample and maybe even attempt to master; but I no longer train for any other reason than enjoyment of the arts.

I want my own dojang. BUT, I refuse to open one if I feel I lack in something. Like if (I should be a 4th dan by then) I get to 4th dan, and I feel I'm not worthy of it, I'll wait till I think I'm ready (I'd rather wait till I'm a 4th dan, at least). I don't want to be just physically able to teach martial arts, but mentally as well.

I also want to be ranked (black belt) in one or two other arts to give my students a choice. And/or mix things up a bit.

I hope to continue to learn and still be able to teach.

With this said I hope to have the respect of my peers and to be able to give that respect in return as well.

10 years???

I'm hoping to be teaching at least part time. Not necessarily on my own but still teaching. So I guess that means I also need to be a black belt, so I better work on that first.

One step at a time.

:D

I hope to be doing what I'm doing now, Still learning and teaching. I do think I'd like to expand my studies to include the Filipino Arts as well.

I see myself still being a student. I really never have the desire to become an instructor. By that time hopefully Ive found an art or system, and instructor that I feel best suits me. beacause it hasnt happend in the past 10 years. but i have my first Pektit Tersia class at 530 tonight, so i still have hope
