I am really enjoying the classes, it is fun that the entire family is now doing it! I see someone else posted this question, but I don't see the answer. Do you have a pointer to the vocabulary blog/wiki?  You also mentioned a "ettiquette explanation" - I'd love to review it.  

 

Thanks

Kenny

Hi Melisa. Thanks for the heads up on the video for the pomse. I found it under the 'current adult poomse' title. One thing I was looking for was a list of vocabulary that we use. I'm slowly getting the counting but am having a hard time understanding what is said when we bow and when we finish for the session and throw our fist in the air.

thanks
