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.

Thanks LinTal! however, i don't train regularly at your dojo, in case you haven't noticed my absence from your classes. LOL. usually when the AKI have one of their national gasshukus in Sydney, i think they usually rent that dojo.

Brilliant, congrats! It's been very inspirational to watch you, I stumbled on your 5th Kyu video by chance some time ago. Another thing, I clicked on your link and started thinking "Wait... that's *my* dojo..." We go to the same place! Which means I was there last weekend!!!
