Re: testing tomorrow

So, it was a yondan test, and yes, I passed - as did the other 5 people taking dan gradings. We had gradings for a shodan, two nidans, a sandans and two yondans. (My dojo is pretty big btw)

I didn't get a lot of feedback, which I see as good. Being old school Japanese, my sensei pretty much only gives you feedback when you have screwed up.

Video and photos are not allowed for tests in our dojo. They were allowed at Honbu though, so this is the first dan grading that I will not be able to relive endlessly. Due to the lack of video evidence to the contrary, this test will likely be my best one ever. (haha)
