I can’t was a phrase that I had used often as a newcomer. But through the years with the help of fellow classmates and constant practice, that phrase fell quickly out of my vocabulary. I was encouraged through these long prosperous years by friends, family, but one was my Sensei. No matter how many times I asked him when I could test for my next kyu(rank), he never quit on me. He helped me when I was caught on something or when I did a move wrong. With how he helped me and guided me along, I was inspired to pass that on to other people.
