I was into my second month of training and on that fateful evening my sensei decided to call for a mock grading. We had a pretty intense session and I didn't have the time to adjust my dogi before the mock grading.
The last technique called was shomenuchi dai ikkyo. My sensei had always reminded me to pay attention to my finishing and all I could remember then was "finish with the gorilla pose! buttocks out!". I did exactly that.
When the class ended my senpai walked up to me and said, " you did pretty well for the mock test..and by the way...your buttocks looked really nice with those pink polka dots!"
