Training notes

Published by gojumk on

I have started taking notes after classes so I can keep a record of what the students have practiced. The idea is that this will help with training plans. I have decided to publish these notes so that student can remind themselves what they learned. It may also be useful for students to see the Japanese terminology we used in the class.

The level of detail and accuracy of the notes may vary so please feel free to add comments.
