Both are great guys, both on and off the mat. Did you test as recently as the 10th of June? I was there the saturday before hand, wish I'd been there to watch though. Welcome to Aikiweb :)

Michael, I agree. No, my test was the previous session in April??? The June 10th tests were fun to watch; two solid sho dan tests and Donna Grant's san dan test. It was a privilege to witness.
