Re: Techniques for beginners

A typical curriculum shows the exercises and techniques that are expected at every level of progression through an arbitrary organization. That's a no brainer.

More importantly, though: What could be more perfect than simply to transmit what you know, as you understand it, sincerely?

Anything except failing on this point can be corrected later. Do well on this point and you may have a hand in inspiring a future shihan or, more importantly, transforming someone's life through this practice.
