    How one can tell that Autumn is approaching...

    - Lots of new students show up for my tae kwon do class, putting us in what I call "white belt hell" until November or so.

    - New members in MM as students return to school and join.

    - Lots of new posts, that quickly start to turn brown and fall to the ground.

    Well, at least two of those.

    This is my post # 2001. Any similarity to this post and Arthur C. Clarke's famous movie & book is purely coincidental. Consistency of pose seems to demand that we supply some music. Maestro, a bit of Richard Strauss's Also Sprach Zarathustra. Yes, THAT one.

    Couldn't we have some Gyأ¶rgy Ligeti instead?

      Quite right. But remember it must open with some Straussian bombast!

        If by this you mean in November most of them will be gone, you're a good sensei :clap:

          They are either yellow belts or they are gone. My teacher and I don't get paid, so we can teach it the way we want to teach it. We don't guarantee them promotion.

          I'm a sensei in Shotokan. In TKD, I'm a sabunim.

            Yes, we are being inundated by white belts...

            Partially, this is my fault, since a friend of mine and I recruited one...

            sorry

              They will improve rapidly, or they will face the consequences.
