Re: Perfection of waza

Josh, you learned katakana first?
I did hiragana first. My Japanese studies consist of 2 hours a week at the local city council, and what ever I pick up at home from wife and family.Not intense study.
Yes alot of characters are similar in katakana vs hiragana. Or even in katakana itself eg.
ン and ソ or ツ and シ very similar but different. And on perfectionism katakana and hiragana being a solid foundation, before you move on don`t you agree you should perfect and comprehend these foundations before attempting to tackle more advanced stages? Just an opinion? I know my Japanese skills are poor but they get better everyday, and I am very young I have a lifetime to improve in all aspects of my new lifestyle.I am just happy to be here Thanks everyone for your thoughts "perfection" is a bad word my intention was to say rather "perform with absolute self confidence and knowledge that you have absorbed this level in total".

Before you drive or steer your vehicle, you must first start the engine, release the brake and find gear!
