Well i`m pleased to hear you graded successfully, yes it does get better but the butterflies never go away. As an experienced aikidoka I now get very nervous for my students when they grade. I just hope that they keep their centre and practice as they normally train. I have four students attempting shodan in a couple of weeks.

Its worse for them as i am also on the panel and their severest critic.
