I will be testing for shodan on May too, I will travel to Japan for it, and I am nervous too, I will be testing this with all new Ukes, all Japanese inf front of Takeda sensei, ufff It sounds scary but when I look inside me I said, no matter how much I trained I will fell the same way, then I think, If my Sensei doesn't think I am prepared for it he wouldn't ask me to take this challenge.

Good luck I will needed too , so please any tips or advice are welcome.

Hi Manu! I feel your pain! I haven't tested for shodan but the AKI tests stress me out! Not so much the waza but the Japanese portion of them! and the burnout ukemi at the end. Good luck!
