    Hi Ya'll,

    OK so we ALL know that we all love doing demos!!! So we also know how stressful it is to prep for one or maybe not but for me it kinda is.

    So what do u take out of this:

    do u believe ur journey in ur martial arts is just at ur pase for testing & the more important thing would be demos then testing??

    Even after ur Teacher told u that ur testing is more important then ur demos?
    What do u think???

    For Me i believe my demos are important than my belt testings. In my case as of right now ive been practicing for this demo in Oct. for about 2 months & then my PSBN whats me to test a week before my demo! Talk about stress here!!! Oh They like to push me to my limits in my bo staff routines which is fine but to tell me im testing in oct! OMG!

    Actually, I'm usually more concerned with better understanding and application of the techniques I'm practicing and improving my personality and mental agility in conflict. Performing is very much a "when I have to" thing.

    Emphasis on training for tests isn't usually a good thing. The test should be tailored to gauge your ability, you shouldn't tailor your training to a particular test.
