Re: A most embarassing start to a test

Shawn,

I don't think such moments ever go away. One such moment that stands out for me was during my test for 1st kyu. Of course it had to happen right at the end. It was just after randori and I was pretty much spent. I bowed to the uke(s) and began to walk off the mat, forgetting that Shihan-dai Jacobs hadn't formally ended the test quite yet. I had made it about halfway off the mat before that fact finally made it through my brain.

I am so grateful that Shihan-dai Jacobs has a good sense of humor.

Like Huss Sensei, I too, am looking forward to Blok Sensei's seminar in May.

With Respect,
Rolf Granlund
