Re: Lack of progress?
All the advice above is excellent and I suggest you take. But also remember that those who are just beginning training are totally unaware of the numerous mistakes they are making. No matter what level you are, as you improve and go higher up the more you will realize your mistakes, even the simplest. This is improvement to be able to see your mistakes, gives you the ability to correct them and become better. I have have gone through the very same frustrations and just embrace the fact you see them and continue to correct yourself. A good friend of mine once said that, "I might do a technique perfect one in a thousand times, but I'm working on making it one in 999". One step at a time, good luck.
