Getting the gentlemen at our dojo to attach the ladies so that we won’t be overly surprise by the force or impact if we ever end up having to defend ourselves or our loved ones on the street.
Of course there is such a thing as being overly zealous no matter who you are working with. ;D

Good point and Welcome Seejay.

I would like to give you some advice in addressing that issue.

Your challenge is felt by many we just don't talk about it. I am glad you brought it to the table. What I suggest you may do to assist them is tell them if they truly cared about you than they need to make it as close to real in the dojo for you.

In our classes our instructors try to make our class harder so that when the time comes in the streets it will not compare to what we have endured already.

Advice your instructor of your concerns.

I hope you will continue to keep us informed on how things go in your training.

Greatest Challenge is....

not always believing in one's own abilities.  I am my own worst critic.  I downplay myself and my skills.  I don't think I belong where I am now, but that I should be lower ranked ( I guess I've done something right).  I think my biggest challenge is getting over being so hard on myself.  It's hard when you are so competitive and know that some things hinder you and that drives you crazy.  So, I must learn to be less critically of myself and accept what others see in me as a martial artist.

Aloha,
Brandi

Greatest Challenge -
Accepting that I am getting older and that I don't heal as fast as I would like too anymore.
