The senseis et al. in sanchin-ryu recommend you keep a notebook of sanchin-ryu--the moves in the forms, etc., and what you learn and change as you progress. I started one a year or so ago and then didn't really keep it up, but recently I started working on it again, partly because I'm only sporadically being exposed to some of the higher number forms (there are 10 forms, which you're expected to "know" before black belt). I know the choreography, generally speaking, but there are occasional holes, or you learn these things one way and then something or someone comes along and points out something you've incorporated that maybe doesn't quite make sense and you adjust. So I've been trying to do more of it.
