Good day to all,

The thread has been very interesting and has made me ponder many ideas
and opinions. Yet I am nagged by one situation. It was said that when a
non scarf is ready to become a cadet, it is usually their motivation
that leads them to become a cadet in further hopes of becoming a Don. 

My question is when does one know when they are ready to become a 
cadet? Surely, they are influenced by outside forces. I believe that it
should be each individuals goals and knowledge of rapier combat that
should lead one to becoming a better fencer. Is this the general
consenses? Or shouls I have started looking for a Don long ago?

A respectful bow is never out of place
