On our first lesson back, after the Christmas & New Year break, Sensei Derrick told me i was ready to take my Nidan.
My first feelings were that of gratitude that sensei thought i was ready, then i began to realize the amount of work i had in front of me.

Last week he asked what i needed to go through, i began to reel of what i thought i would need, he chuckled and added 'ok. make a list'

It reminded me when i was about to take Shodan, i was asked by Sensei Riley on the last class before my grade - what i wanted to cover, my reply was 'the last 5 years'

So i need to break out of my 'comfort bubble' and put in the extra effort, time, sweat, focus and mileage - clearly set my goals and ramp up my training to achieve them.

Chris when I was in England last summer I watched a DVD of The Mikado by Gilbert and Sullivan. It's set in a stylized nineteenth century idea of Japan. Ko-Ko the Lord High Executioner has "got a little list... " http://wonderingminstrels.blogspot.c...s-gilbert.html. Not really relevant to budo but it's Japanese and your title made me think of it! Cheers, Niall
