In Testing Newly Minted 6th kyu Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #4 New 05-05-2010 06:36 PM
Hey Everyone

On the 4th of May I graded for my 6th kyu
It as taken me a few days to go over things in my mind, to be fair it was pretty hard and the only reason it was hard was because I over think things, so my sensei told me not to worry as this is normal but to be fair I thought I blew it.

I know I can do all those techniques but for what ever reason I did not do them as well as I could so this as lit a real fire in me, I am currently sitting on 50 hours and 5th kyu is just around the corner I am going to train even harder and not let my basics get sloppy.

Next time a new more focused person will be grading I do not want to get sloppy or relaxed I want to improve on my basics to get my aikido stronger

In the grand scheme of things I had a little mile stone I know from experience that the first grading is always the hardest, you would think by now I would be used to it but I am not

My whole club helped me prepare my grading not 1 person did not help in some way Aikido for me is like a home I never knew I had with long lost brothers and sisters there to help guide you.

I am so happy I found an awesome club and all you guys here on aikiweb

Best wishes from a newly minted 6 kyu

Congrats! It seems most people dread testing. Some do worse on tests, some do better on tests and others aren't bothered by it at all. Your view may change. I have a blog entry that has an essay written by my sensei about testing and why its important.

congrats! Just keep training.The rest will sort itself out. I'm just getting ready to take my 5th kyu and I feel much more prepared than I did my 6th. I'm actually kind of looking forward to it.

Congratulations!!! I love your post. I felt that same "raised by a whole village" thing, with everyone teaching and guiding. It's a pretty amazing experience. Great attitude. Have fun on this next leg of the journey! Linda
