In General Yellow Belt for Baylen Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #27 New 09-28-2005 12:06 PM
So I called my student the other day and told him to come over this morning for his test.

He got 2 hours of sleep the night before and did very well. He had all the requirements down. He missed a few minor details like stomp kick and backfist for strikes. He also missed one of the footwork techniques we do in the beginning of class.

His kicks needed some work, but for a yellow belt, he has the skill necessary to start sparring. I really want to concentrate on the kicks and punches to make them beautiful. To me kicks and punches are an art in their own. We make them look beautiful so that the appearance is something to desire. If you can do this, then your punches and kicks will be easy to use because you have prefected them. It's like good footwork. If you have it, then it shows. So we will practice that more and more.

He did very well on the escapes from mount and guard. I actually put a little effort into keeping him there and he was able to get out of them. Not too bad.

I told him the things he needed to work on, and hopefully he realizes that orange belt means tightening those basic skills even more and adding some more techniques.

Well good job Baylen, and good luck in the future.
