Oh hey, I wasn't expecting this! Thanks a lot guys for incorporating me into this community. There's been some times when I've had some serious doubts about my karate and it's direction, and in those times you all have been there to set me straight. This forum and its members have been an invaluable part of my growth and journey for the last year plus. I hope that you all have been able to get something of value out of my musings, I know I sure have benefited from being here.

Thank you to all of you.

Congrats, shortyafter; well deserved!!

Doubt?! Welcome to the MA. Seriously, what I know about you, through your posts here, is that you're doing fine. You respect the process across the board, and your MA journey has just begun.

Doubts are erased by the endless Aha moments through Shu Ha Ri that you'll experience for the rest of your life.

I got your back; you've got my support!!

Thank you sensei8! I sure do appreciate all of your perspective and support. One of the biggest lessons I've gotten from you is the lesson of patience. Not only have I started to apply to my MA journey, but also to my broader life as a whole. Can't get much better than that.

Thanks for being in my corner.

Hey, congrats!

In my experience, anyone who's taking something very serious and making a long-term commitment tends to have doubts. I know I have!!
