2nd Dan Workbook

To be invited to become a Shodan or 2nd Dan karate blackbelt, one must demonstrate one has begun to understand their karate: all the techniques and kata that were so tricky to learn to get to 1st Dan, must now be of a higher standard, and the take-downs & wrist locks must work. On anyone. 

This time the workbook comprises ‘only’ four tasks: self-discipline, humility, knowledge and respect.
