I think I passed.
I stepped on uke once. But I think I passed.
Sensei said it was "outstanding." So I think I passed.
Everyone told me it was a very cool test with some really neat techniques they had never seen. Isn't it funny how you always think you did REALLY bad, but everyone else says you did wonderful.
What's also ironic, is that I had a half hour to practive before the test. I did it perfectly. I mean it was sublime. No mistakes. Perfect footwork, balance, timing, everything.
And then there's the test.
I STEPPED on uke. I had to turn it into a foot pin.
I also had to turn a ushirowaza technique into a koshinage because uke decided he wanted to go around the wrong way. Poor guy.
But Sensei said he couldn't wipe the smile off of his face, literally. He doesn't usually say anything, but I was leaving for vacation, so he took pity on me.
I'm pretty sure I passed.
Oh my God, I just took my Shodan test, and most likely passed. I've been dreaming of this time ever since I learned what a black belt was. I just...took Shodan. And probably PASSED. o_O
Wow...so that's what this feels like...
