Finally, after a year and a half, I took my 6th kyu test - and passed. I brought my dvd camcorder and taped my test. Not surprisingly, the video tape allows me to see my actions, techniquest, etc., more objectively. Here's what I saw in the video that needs work:

- Bokken kumitachi 1 & 2 - better control of strikes and blocks

- Ikkyo - It seems I 'stall' at the top of the ikkyo movement; the drop is not altogether smooth

- Shihonage - my irimi vs. tenkan are messy and tend to resemble each other's footwork

We had class last night and I'm already working on improvements to the above based on my kyu test. I fully recommend videotaping yourself. It's a fantastic way to actually see the wierd things you are doing that your instructor has been getting you to correct in past lessons.

Cheers.
