Re: congratulations shodan

Well, thanx, and congrats to all the others, who have been out there with me, and of course to the new nidan and sandans, who also passed on the course.
Guess all I need now, is for my hakama to arrive...

Among others, yes. You probably know Carsten from Freiburg as well, and of course Zoran (he passed Sandan). I'm not sure, if you met any of the English, though.
