So I haven't posted in this thread for awhile, but Zach and I have both been continuing to train hard and consistently. Yesterday I successfully tested for my shodan rank -- a big milestone for me. It was the most intense and difficult test I've undertaken so far. I partnered with my CI for the partner work, and he kicked things up to eleven; I kicked my intensity up as well. I was able to hit every segment with power and intensity, but the bunkai section left me seriously gassed. In the end though, I did pass!

Here are the obligitory pictures:

Zach is still training hard and training well -- he should be testing for his nikyu in the next couple of months.
