In General 4th Kyu test aftermath Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #15 New 12-03-2006 05:37 AM
I took the 4th Kyu test last Thursday.
My teacher and the head instructor remarked that I kept the most uniform and slow pace among all testers, it must've been automatic since I was very nervous.
My teacher said that I did "Roy successes and Roy failures". As in saying, not better than what I do in classes, but not worse. Which is good I guess. I just wish I could sit with them and watch myself so I can figure out what Roy Failures are.
I got a specific remark about Irimi nage - which I am going to pay special attention to, it's about time I master this one!

The head instructor said two good things about me. He said that my extra investment in showing up to class 3-4 times a week shows, that I've started out very stiff and now I'm rounding up a bit. He also said that it was "a good test". That made me feel good, since I knew I can pass it, but I wanted to pass it honorably, to deserve it, and his remark made me feel that I did.

My next test is to figure out how to break my mold and continue improving.

Recently, leading up to my ikkyu grading, I've had a camcorder setup during some training sessions so that the next day/week I can look it over and see what others see, it's very enlightening!! I also had my grading videoed but I haven't seen that properly yet, should be interesting Graham
