WOW! My first test last night - what a rush! I was so nervous about doing the footwork that I stopped breathing. Not a good thing too do! Sensei David knew I was stressing too much, so he made a point to make me laugh to loosen up. Went much better after that. I was proud that I got thru it and only screwed up once! I'm not good at getting up in front of others - I don't like being in the spotlight so to speak. I just sent my mind towards what I was doing and shut out my classmates that were observing. Guess we all get nervous during a test, being judged and watched by your fellow classmates, fear of failure. Nerve racking to say the least. Did manage to get thru class, practicing falls and rolls on the right side only - left is still in pain. Twinges when I was doing strikes and blocks with the left, but I didn't over do it. It would set me back even more if I re-injure my shoulder. What a great day!
