ok random question I have never thought to ask, once you pass your shodan test, do you have to go out and buy your own black belt or is it generaly presented to you? I have watched several shodan tests and never really noticed or thought to ask
My first , second , third, fourth, and fith dan belts in karate were all presented formally before the start of the class about 4 months after I took the test all of that has taken 30 years.
I have been practising Akido for quite a number of years now and have not attempted my first black belt grading yet I am in no rush, I guess when I do I will know how it is presented. I have sen others obtain theirs and they were all presented during class times.
