Went up to the dojo and turned in my test request form. I am always nervous about testing. Rick and I were able to get in a special test prep secession today, it was technically open training, but since no one else knew that the Dojo was open it ended up being just us two on the mat. It was a good workout.
Friday night I had planned on being at the dojo and had sent a note off to Doug, who has agreed to be my uke for my second kyu test, asking if he was going to be there. He sent back a non-committal reply. One of my customers had an emergency I needed to take care of so I didn't make class. I learned from Sensei that he had been there, and fired off an apology e-mail. Doug showed up at my practice with Rick, even though he didn't train he watched for quite a while and gave some good feedback. It was great!!!
All in all a good week, although I would have liked to have made the Friday night class.
