At least on the part of "Club Uke" anyway.
He is now a fully paid up mamber of the Dan Grade fraternity. Well deserved adn about time too

It was a looooooong day, Definately another Mooney grading, what with 27 people being put through their paces. The man from Reading asked why we weren't Ukes. Fear that's why!
(If I ever got the chance to time travel I would use it to go back in time and meet my 18 year-old self. I would kick her arse like nobodies business. Things like "you might think doing that task is scarey but there is NOTHING as scarey as wondering what you might have missed, what you could have done, how good you might have been, who you could have met and made friends with, why you didn't keep in touch", "mistakes are how you improve and learn"...all the usual self help stuff.) I've editted this three times to try and stop it sounding so naff!!

I wonder if I'd listen though.

I must volunteer to be UKE. Anyone who reads this has my permission to kick my arse if I don't. I've been loosing focus during lessons which doesn't help. I find that I've been kneeling down watching Sensei and then when he shouts tachi I can't remember what has just been shown. I'm off thinking about my house and about work and 100 other neuroses about things. I can remember the outline of what has been shown but not the details. So much for being a senior grade.

A friend and I where having this same conversation several days ago. "Time travel to whip our own butts about our buts." We can, by the way of mentoring, time-travel. If we could honestly make a commitment to find a younger version of ourselves and whip them into shape, assuming they would trust you, we could therefore bask in their success.
