Made it
Furffu, Sensei Sherry gives tough lessons. Knackered.
Still, made 8th kyu.
So did YB, though with a T for Temporary, meaning yes you can have a red belt but you need to sharpen up.
Which will be easier now we have two strips of masking tape on the living room floor so he ca check his stance width is right, from which much follows. Wish I'd thought of it sooner.

Congrats to you both. And the masking tape sounds like an excellent idea.

Yes, we had a tough night, too. We're practising for the competition in May, so I had to learn a new pattern.

Hmm. Everywhere T practises has carpet. Wonder what else we can do to help his patterns (TK/KKB are different-but-same for these purposes)?

Find/make a roll of something that's just wide enough to fit between the feet when shoulder-width apart - he must NOT touch it when moving!

Oh, yes, that would work - I have a footstool about the right size, we can experiment. :D
