Re: First Shinza coming up...

Hard to believe its two years this month since my first test. I was really nervous leading up to it as well. Had a slight panic attack a few days before it and told one of my teachers I just was not ready. But on the day I got up and tested and it went fine. Funny thing was one of my friends had take a bit of video of me during the test and you can hear fire trucks in the background which my friends all found quite funny.

Before any test when someone is nervous sensei Garth Jones always says, " Don't worry. If you fail the test you get to keep training. If you pass the test... you get to keep training".
