Re: To Test, or not to Test

Hey Gordon,

Somewhat voluntarily, I gave up my title of North America's Longest Training Mudansha last year. It's up for grabs, you might be a contender...

I took my 5th kyu test in 1990, and passed my shodan in December, 2006. The tengu take special interest in those of us who have chosen the long road, and will endow you with special skills once you reach shodan. So take heart, keep training, and find a non-dysfunctional dojo.
