Grey belt!

I had the evaluation today - I'll do a diary entry later.

This time I earned it. I now have the title "Instructor" and now I have to start taking Improvement classes to advance.

Toda rabbah!

It's not the same as the siyyum, but it's pretty darn good.

As much as I want to congratulate you on your progress (go, you!), it seems like your school is treating martial arts as a lucrative enterprise and its students as a source of profit more than anything.

My eyes are wide open in that respect, and have been for months. They put on too much pressure to take more classes and spend more money for me not to see this. They're not getting me to pay for the accelerated classes; and if I can't fit the improvement classes in, I can't. I can do the Instruction ones, and I do want to teach, so that I'll do.

But I've kept this up for over a year, which is several times longer than I've done *any* excercise routine by far and I can see real improvement in my physical condition and I can tell I'm getting good workouts, and that's what counts, no? As an exercise regime, it's really, really *good*.

Congrats!

Thank you!

Mazel tov!
