i presented for my shodan grading yesterday. i still have not really processed the whole thing yet, but i don't actually remember thinking very much during the grading. it was pleasantly quiet inside except a select few loud thoughts that i remember having...

1) "ow, my thighs are caning!" - just after the first set of hanmi-hantachi techniques

2) "no time! no time!" - while being rushed by 3 ukes during randori.

3) "ouch! damn, how am i going to explain this bruise at work tommorow?" - after being hit right below the eye with a bokken.

4) "oops, that's embarassing!" - after doing a couple of sutemi nage instead of sumi otoshi.

5) "hallelujah, it's over!" - when instructed to perform kokyu-ho.

last weekend, i had the honour of attempting for my ikkyu grading in the presence of Takeda Shihan. it was tricky to prepare for it because i moved interstate a couple of months ago and had to join a different dojo under a different 'style', and so had to guess what version i needed to present for the grading.

anyways, have a look at the youtube video. your comments would be most welcome.
