Finally went through Shaolin Chuan from start to finish in Kung Fu tonight. I need practice still, but -- and this is the important bit -- I know all the first level curriculum!

White belt, end of summer, oh yeah, I think that's doable. ;) I am so jazzed!

One of the advanced students was teaching tonight, and he commented several times about how good my form was. I need to get lower into my stances, which I've known all along and I am working on constantly. For one sequence of moves (gungbu stance with front snap kick), he bestowed on me the highest compliment a teacher can give a martial arts student:

"Hmm ... really I couldn't see anything wrong with that."

May not sound like much to the casual observer, but to a dedicated student, it's a big deal. :)

So yeah, I'd say it was a good class tonight. ;)
