Re: Dojo Training Syllabus

i agree with all the posts here...or parts of all the posts...

i also look at hombu's requirements as a minimum of what each rank should at least be comfortable with.

i think its a cool idea that each shodan should be able to show a certain syllabus of all basic techniques. but, like mike said, its a matter of getting everyone on the same page. and its not just that some styles don't do this technique or that, its more like not all groups have the same names for the same techniques. what we call tenchinage might be called kokyu nage in another dojo. or what we call juji nage might be called ude garami nage and so on...

then there's the question of buki waza, which not all dojos may teach.
