Re: How long did it take you?

1. How many years did it take you to get your first black belt?

6 and a bit

2. how often on average did you practice? (hours per week

average 4.5 (1.5 hr sessions) 7.5 when preparing for tests.
we also have 4 three day seminars a year and a 4 day summer camp of which I missed two total.

3. Did you have to take time-off (more then a month) because of unexpected injury or other unforeseen event.

Summer holidays with family each year usually 3 - 5 weeks

4. and finally did you deserve it?

No but as mentioned before by Christian I worked hard for it and my sensei though I deserved it.
