Re: Testing for Shodan

I realise Daniel is probably joking. But one of the worst shodan exams I saw was a case where the guy got overexciteed or maybe panicked and did his entire randori just lunging his hand into the ukes' faces. We got a very long speech from an unhappy Yamada sensei that year.

I agree with he rest though. Relax and enjoy yourself. But stay focussed and have presence; remember relaxed does not mean wet noodle.
