Today we held junior gradings and for the third time Sensei had me sit next to him while he conducted them. I wasn't asked my opinion this time though, although I was immediately put to work correcting them all after the grading while he made up his mind on who had passed, which turned out to be all of them.
You know something though, when I was called out by Sensei I thought of it as a great privilege, thirty minutes later I wasn't so sure as my legs had gone to sleep. Mind you it was better than the excruciating pain I was in.
