My first grade was unbelievably nervy. I was also berated by a shodan during the practice that preceeded the gradings who said I should rethink taking the test. It was pretty much the last thing I needed to hear when feeling as nervous as I was. Thankfully I passed and proved to myself that I could do it, couldn't help but feel smug that I proved this particular Yudansha wrong too.
