In General 8th January, 2005 - Mock Kyu Test - Hearing vs. Do Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #8 New 01-08-2005 10:45 AM
I was hoping our instructor would go through a mock test prior to our actual scheduled test. No better way to practice the test than in a test situation.

Although I have practiced the techniques and am able to do each one (and their variations - tenkan, irimi, pins, etc.), I was surprised at being caught off guard when the sensei shouts out the next technique to be performed. For example, sense said to perform shomen uchi irimi nage. My brain must have locked up because I couldn't remember all of a sudden what those words meant.

After what seemed several agonizing seconds and a gutteral, questioning "Huh? Please repeat that again?" to the sensei, I finally remember what that combination of words meant. I then went happily on my way and performed the technique and its variants.

I think I need more practice in the language and being able to associte meaning and actions more readily.

Onegaishimazu and Domo Arigato Gozaimashita.
