In General Julia's test. Entry Tools Rate This Entry

Julia's test went wonderfully. It was really an honor to be part of her test. My right wrist is still feeling it from one of the sankyo techniques. No one else jumped up for the Ran dori so I was able to participate in that portion also. We went to lunch afterwards, and it was a good time.

Sensei thanked me for helping to make the event happen, and being so flexible, and willing to help at the last minute. It was a very personal thank you, and was a bit surprising to me, in a pleasant surprise way. It really made my day.

The test was fun, Julia was grinning through most if it, and there were a couple of giggles out of me during the hanmi handachi section of the test. It felt good, smooth, and fun.

:-) There is a saying at the dojo that you have not earned your rank fully until you have uked for someone taking the test you passed. What does it mean that I have helped with two Shodan tests now? :-) :-)
