All,

I'm not sure if anyone is really interested, but I posted a summary of the tests at my dojo this past Saturday:

Congratulations, Drew. Nothing like testing while sweat pours off you in buckets and makes your hands all slippery :p

I've never heard of testing for two ranks at once. Is this common in your dojo? Why is it done this way? Just curious.

Hi Jim,

Thanks. I actually lost uke's hand at one point in a technique 'cause of all the sweat.

It's not common to test for two ranks at once, but we hadn't tested for over a year. Partly this was because we had to move our dojo to a new building, and partly because after we moved we got an influx of new students. Waiting just a bit longer made it possible for the new students to test as well.

Regards,

-Drew

Thanks Ron. At this rate, I'm on pace for 8th dan in 140 years! :)

Just kidding.

Anyway, we're going to be posting some pictures from the test on our web site soon. I'll let everyone know when they're up.
