So, I am running my little Neo-Bokator martial arts gym. Wich is actually an MMA gym disguised as a traditional martial arts gym. I pretty much have to make up stuff as I go. I've been winging it for a couple of years now, awarding belts as I see fit. But I think it is time to create a teaching guide for my senior students and clear demands on display. Maybe like a poster of what I expect every belt colour to be able to do. I hope some of you have experience with judo, wrestling and other real martial arts, that can say if I am missing anything crucial here.
