On the 4th of May I graded for my 6th kyu
It as taken me a few days to go over things in my mind, to be fair it was pretty hard and the only reason it was hard was because I over think things, so my sensei told me not to worry as this is normal but to be fair I thought I blew it.
I know I can do all those techniques but for what ever reason I did not do them as well as I could so this as lit a real fire in me, I am currently sitting on 50 hours and 5th kyu is just around the corner I am going to train even harder and not let my basics get sloppy.
Next time a new more focused person will be grading I do not want to get sloppy or relaxed I want to improve on my basics to get my aikido stronger
In the grand scheme of things I had a little mile stone I know from experience that the first grading is always the hardest, you would think by now I would be used to it but I am not
My whole club helped me prepare my grading not 1 person did not help in some way Aikido for me is like a home I never knew I had with long lost brothers and sisters there to help guide you.
I am so happy I found an awesome club and all you guys here on aikiweb
