So I just completed transcribing instructions for all 40 of the techniques in 3rd brown for my instruction book. I didn't even try to transcribe the the 250 steps or so in either of the kata.
But to describe those 40 techniques, succinctly but accurately it took 2531 words, 5 pages, 11 pt font, and about 8.5 hours of work between yesterday and today.
Worst yet... I really need to go back and do it for the other belts. I did it for Green or Blue ( I forget which) but not the beginning belts.
