comment Sliding the Feet in Contact With the Ground
I like the point on iaido, so +1 for that, but I think your impression of rapier is a bit off. We did live steel tests on melons and sides of beef and pork: if you hit with anything other than the lightest possible touch with a blade, you ended up binding your blade and not being able to retrieve it quickly. So hitting with power was never the intent, speed was.

Around 4—5 most days, including the head instructor. A few more during the summer.

@Trevoke I can answer that, but I don't know how relevant it is for the general case since all that it changes are the specifics of the application and the specifics of the pacing. The question stands regardless of the number of belts, time between them, or the number of lessons involved.
