In General Pre-test jitters… Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #17 New 06-13-2003 12:50 PM
Tomorrow, Saturday June 14, we are testing at my dojo, and I'm nervous. The most senior student in the dojo taught class last night and did his best to calm us down. I'm most likely testing for 4th and 3rd kyu tomorrow (we have an 8 kyu system). Our instructor may ask to see 2nd kyu techniques as well, but I doubt I'll be formally tested for three belt ranks. If so, I'll fail the 2nd kyu test because I still don't know the 22 count jo kata very well.

The reason a couple of us are getting tested for more than one belt rank is that we haven't tested in quite a long time. For the most part, that's not a problem, but it is nice to get the test and to use the time before it to focus on a certain set of techniques.

I'm feeling pretty confident that I know what I need to know. Our sempai pointed out that nobody ever does as well on a test as he or she would like, and my wife pointed out that I was nervous for the last test and I did fine. I think I'm actually less nervous than before, but we'll see.

I'll post later and describe how the test went.
