It’s been a great week for all of your training partners, who received new stripes and belts this week from your coach in reward for their hard work and outstanding progress. Reports confirm that everyone has recently earned a new rank, and that your coach could not be prouder of them and the way they’ve been performing at the gym recently.
“It’s always a delight when you get to work with students who remind you what drew you to the art in the first place,” your coach said after a recent class where nine new stripes were awarded and your training partner received a purple belt. “Every instructor dreams of working with receptive students who care about what you’re teaching and who you truly care about as people. There’s no better feeling than seeing that look of pride and joy on the face of a student who has earned it.”
Your coach added that while some rival schools criticize your academy for being a promotion factory, they just truly believe that it’s important to show students that their hard work is being acknowledged, and it’s much better to give a promotion too early than it is to overlook any student who has earned their next step for even one day.
