Gradings IV

 

 

 

Guys, I think that our instructor is incompetent.

 

Why's that ?

 

He has been constantly criticising me - bad stance, too slow, too weak, and so on.

 

He even told me that I wasn't advanced enough for the next higher rank.

 

That is exactly what he told several other students.

 

What will you do now ?

 

Last weekend I had my belt examination, and I passed without any problem. No remark that I would do anything wrong whatsoever.

 

Same with me.

 

And in general ?

 

Some people were significantly worse than me. I mean, when those did pass, I deserve it even more. 

 

Did you see the one with the slip of paper, always looking up his next move ? 

 

Yes, and one guy always cried "ouch" when being warded off. After some time he purposely missed the target.

 

I liked best the dude who left during his performance in order to not miss "Lost" on TV.

 

What happened then ?

 

They mailed him his new rank certificate.

 

And the others ?

 

Everybody passed. And our coach suggests that we are not good enough.

 

He only wants to show off. In the future, I let the wise guy talk and do it my way.

 

I really wonder whether to attend his training classes any longer. It might cause me some bad habits.
