International Instructors Course at Missouri
Master Nicholls was met with a huge reception as we entered the hall in which the IIC was to be conducted. After several minutes waiting for the applause to stop the large group was divided into 3 so that tuls could be performed comfortably. It was then straight to work as colour belt patterns were performed and scrutinised by colour belts and black belts alike as they stood on the sides. Master Nicholls made it clear that no one was to feel as though they were being analysed and that it was the tuls themselves that were being focused upon.
