Re: There Are No Shortcuts

All my teachers urged me to train every day. It took me a few years, but I finally realized they weren't telling me to show up to the dojo every day. Only that I should train every day.

Now I've been training every day for decades. Such "soto" work is never to be considered a substitute for the work done inside the dojo, but it too is essential.

And for the record, I agree with Mario on this one.

Fair wishes for your sandan, and we'll look forward to the report.
