Ok, I have a request, if you all don’t mind: this is more of a pet peeve/rant, so just bear with me for a moment
I imagine this happens in every academy, and it’s definitely not a new concept, but when several sets if partners are training at the same time, sometimes set will get to a point where they will roll perilously close to one another, and will occasionally run into one another.
It happens, and I know it’s hard to control sometimes but please just be aware of the sets going on around you. I know it’s hard, and i’m guilty of almost (and sometimes literally) rolling on top of people as well sometimes, but if you can think of it just be mindful. If there’s a question of who needs to move, we have the policy “rank has right of way”: if this is also a policy at your academy, note where your higher ranks have started so you’re not surprised when one is suddenly next to you. Hopefully if everyone stays aware, everyone can spend more time training, less time scootching around and everyone stays relatively safe from an accidental hand or foot shooting out and hitting them. Yay!
For a harmonious training space, please keep this in mind. Thank you.
How does your academy deal with sets that run too closely together, especially academies with smaller training spaces?
