Re: Preparing for Test Outside of Regular Class Time

Hi Brian,

Yep, my teacher expected my sempai to help me prepare for tests outside of regular class time and that is the model I use in my dojo too. I, too, think there is much to be learned by getting together outside of regular training times. The keeners in my "home" dojo would always show up early so we could toss each other about before class. It is amazing how much you can learn in these short, informal sessions.

Cheers,

Russ
