J has very quickly caught up to higher levels than any of the adults who had started about the same time. His basics are strong, although his muscles haven’t caught up yet, and his intuitiveness, and situation awareness is very acute. He could very well be trained to become a top-performing kendoka under a good instructor. I’m hoping not to be a hindrance, and careful about suppressing his natural speed, agility, and gan. It’s as if he joined our club with kendo built-in in him. It’s up to us help him to release it. It’s little unfortunate that we don’t have another young kid like him, but I do see a couple of potential matches, if guided well.
