As much as my sensei promoted me to nidan upon advice of his sensei. I have decided to grade for it properly as i feel i havent earnt it unless i graded for it. As it wouldnt feel right if i didnt grade for it as a shodan.

It is going to be a gruelling 4 hour grading on the 12th December. But the difference is that we have a short turn around for results as we have our clubs breakup on the 16th. As we normally have about 1-1.5 months between grading and finding out results for black belt gradings.

I am actually nervous about going for it but still rather excited about it. Will definitely post results once it comes out.

Good luck; though the vote of confidence off both your own sensei, and his, should mean you will not need it.
