"Ali's been on a sabattical" said my instructor to a visiting Sensei.
That's one way of putting it! I got my brown belt and went from twice/three times a week with the occasional weekend course to once a fortnight or even once a month in places.
Well, now I'm back at the coal face and I have missed it soooo much! I have made my first wobbly steps towards Shodan. and Dear GOD I have a lot of work to do especially if I#m going to make it by April...
Some of my fellow brown belts who I trained with, weekend just gone, are superb. I say some... I mean all of them.
