Review your year; decide on where you need to improve Kata, kumite, Bunkai, Renzouku, etc…. Pick one as your primary choice as an example Geikisai Dai Ichi; seek out info; do extra practice; get feed back from everyone!! Find challenges Gradings (Shinza), Workshops (Kenkyuka/Gasshuku), Demonstrations (Embu), and Tournaments (Shiai/Taikai) to offer you challenges to get you out of your comfort zone to help your Martial Arts to become truly part of you! Applying what you know to these situations will help you develop. Therefore, what you know might be useful in a real situation (Self Defence)! Remember real situations are potentially complicated but start with things, you can control such as frequent good practice!
