Re: Ethical questions before Shodan exam


I tore both menisci in my knee during my last class before my shodan exam. I postponed the exam until after surgery and rehab and came back better than before in many ways. I was really angry and disappointed at the time of injury, but it all worked out for the better. The time it took to recover fully was nothing when thinking of the time I'd already spent on the mat. Best of luck with whatever you choose to do.
