This article entitled "A new dawn in the Land of the Rising Sun" tells us of Alan Smyth from Belfast who has been training in Osaka, Japan with Nariyama sensei, 9th dan Shodokan (Tomiki) aikido for the past four years. The article tells us of his third degree black belt test that he took after fifteen years of aikido training.

Thumbs down Re: "A New Dawn in the Land of the Rising Sun"

Great article I think... now I'm seriously shaking in my boots since I'm due for my Sandan test this year.

Alan's article makes me want to add another year of training before I attempt it to be honest.

Kudos and congratulations to Alan though it sounds like his hard work and perseverance were well rewarded.
