the challenge of group practice: giving everyone a chance to be in the growth zone

teaching challenge 1: ten tsuku speed up (password: "krislovesme")
- group practice
-- problem: everyone gets to their growth zone for only a brief moment
- "ignoring others" practcie
-- problem: distracting, no push from others
- "shared jiuchi" practice
-- problem: requires prep (complicated to understand, practicing switching to half-speed, etc)

teaching challenge 2: 1eau Drill
- teaching difficulty increases as student needs diverge
-- teach one part
-- use ignoring others practice
-- use shared jiuchi and let individuals depart from main plan if they need

teaching challenge 3: naname with complicated sticking (first half KarB-4)
- kuchishoga
- clapping with partner
- on drum
