Re: funny grading moments

Ok best thread ever!!!

It's not too funny but my grandmother flew out for my shodan last year but it was in the morning so my parents (not morning people) got her to the dojo late. She had missed pretty much the whole test, but just as the randori part was about to begin I saw her slowly walking to the dojo. How we do randori on a test is that nage bows to his/her ukes when ready to begin. I didn't want my grandma to miss any more so I pretended to need to catch my breath until she was seated. I guess I'm not a good actress (I usually never need to catch my breath) everybody was laughing by the time I bowed.
