Re: Good news, i passed my 1st grading today

Congratulations. I recently had my first student reach 2. kyu. First time I had one of my students grade in front of a panel of judges at a national seminar. It felt just as great as grading myself

At the same time I did a little math.. 25 gradings in five different budo since 1983. Funny thing is that you never quite get used to it. It's a bit scary every time, but also a great opportunity to get some details in place. Great learning experience.

BTW: 10 years? that's a long way to shodan... hope you get a chance to ramp it up a bit.. but remember to enjoy the process.
