I honestly do not know what a way to long syllabus looks and/or feels like. I embrace the syllabus as it is, and never have given it a thought, for a second. Even when we discuss the syllabus, with it sitting on the table, I've never once thought and/or said..."Man, our syllabus is long!!" It's important across the board, but at the end of the day, as far as I'm concerned, it's just a thing, and it just isn't that important to loose sleep over it and/or its length.

Whenever a student asks about the its length...and asks, Why? And they have asked from time to time...

"The summation of 'Why' is to the summation of 'Because'!! Now please go train hard and train well!!"

As I like to say "it is what it is".

We do have some particular advantages here, however.

a) This is martial arts. It's not supposed to be easy!
b) The syllabus is essentially a contract between the instructor and the student. All complaints about the syllabus should be aired BEFORE signing up for class.
