Scott. Maybe they were trying to say you know all the "secrets" or something like that... who knows! I am glad I don't have to wear a hakama for many years. I am convinced I will be the one who trips over and over again!
LOL on the secrets...I wish!!!
yea...I tried to get into the joke...oh well. BTW there is a picture of it on the dojo webpage, but I'm not going to link to it.
But I think my main point is that celebrate the accomplishment, and remember that the person achieving it will go thru a change. Direct them thru it accordingly, and it will make a happier dojo.
