Whomever is saying that isn't paying attention to the show. Rand is the Iron Fist, therefore his training is complete. He has on more than one occasion claimed to be "unbeatable" because that's what being the Iron Fist means.
Recently watched the tournament ep, that was some seriously sad fight choreography and editing.
Though you would think chi recharging would be a basic skill taught, maybe healing is advanced, but recharging chi seems like it would be kinda needed..and it was literally taught to him within a few minutes. In fact, he learned healing in a few minutes too.
I'm starting to think these monks have a weird teaching system. The Hand is so evil they..taught him to heal and become more powerful in like 10 minutes? Damn them, I guess.

I'm not that far into the show, up to ep 6 or 7 I think. But thus far, everything seems to point to that he's the Iron Fist because he's completed his training, bested the best the monastery had to offer etc.
Wasn't aware the IF was given before you're ready. Really makes no sense. The defender of Kun Lun and he's not fully trained?
Seriously, it is like they try to make him as unlikable and as big of a failure as possible on purpose. The characters flat out call him stupid, incompetent and childish on multiple occasions and the season explicitly ends on him being the biggest ****-up Ironfist ever.
God, Ward starts off as almost a cartoonishly huge dick and ends the show its true hero. Its incredible.

To become the Iron Fist you have to complete a series of trials and then take the heart of Shou-Lao. That gives you the magical power but not knowledge of the full use and extent of it. Even in the comics Danny Rand learns new abilities he himself didn't know he had from prior Iron Fist's like Orson Randall, other Immortal Weapons, etc.
The Hand are actually more likable than Danny by far. Bakuto and Gao are so much more competent and reasonable than him its insane. They don't even do anything that bad. And they teach him to not suck as the Iron Fist and even help him work through his emotional problems? Like, wtf? The bad guys are better at being good guys than Danny is? What? By the end I genuinely suspect that they may not be all that bad and Danny was just demonising them unfairly and jumping the gun.
How bad can you get when the villain has to give the main character counseling on how to stop sucking? Gao has to tell him how to be less of a **** up. Its insane.
Hell, Danny's presence in the story literally only leads to more pain than if he'd never gotten involved. The only thing different from the beginning at the end is a lot of people suffering and Ward being a better person.
[SPOILER - highlight to read]: Can't blame them, he actually is that bad. Its so bizarre that the show only seems to support the notion that Danny genuinely is that terrible and really is a hinderance to everyone around him.
Given what happens at the end I wouldn't be surprised. Danny never even suspected that letting the Hand know the Iron Fist had abandoned his post may lead them to attack Kun Lun.
Are you insuating people are displeased with with show because they're fans of the character? If so lol
They clearly have dropped the ball here. The choreography in the show was objectively bad. Which both the characters, and the plot say is important and out of this world. Clearly it isn't, not even close, and is far from anything good
