Re: I test on Saturday: Now, I'm feeling a bit nervous.

This is my test. I'm lucky... starting next year we'll have shorter tests at all ranks so I won't have such a murderous 4th Kyu test (then again... knowing Sensei... lol)

I know them all... just on a few of them, my stance switching is terrible (my biggest weakness I feel are my feet and stance switching). I was having problems getting off the line but I have been having people just randomly do Shomenuchi on me from standing and sitting without me doing technique so I can start to "feel" where it's coming from and try to get out of the way. I actually like that little practice I made up because it makes me have to be alert since I don't know what direction they're going to come at me from.
