After reviewing all the Candidate game plans / strategies that were submitted, I've put together a basic training outline to help you be aware of where you should be in your Black Belt journey if you are serious about reaching your goal in May.  

We will discuss this outline in the Saturday, 23 February class and hard copies will be sent home with all Candidates.
