Hey everyone,

After almost a year of waiting (brought on by the grandmaster) I finally tested monday night and earned my yellow sash. The test was gruelling and the grandmaster gave me a pretty challenging oral exam as well as a performance exam. I can't wait to start sword training in January. Overall he was very gracious and fair, but I realized that I have a long way to go before I will test again. Oh well. I'm going to celebrate this short step for a few days then back to training. Later.

Congrads. I took a long time to test for my 1st gup/kyu (about a 8 month wait). I failed the first time. But passed this time (after a year). So you're not alone. Job well done.

Remember its always about the 'journey' never get down on yourself if you fail a grading, get up and try again! just like life, you learn something about yourself at each grading, its not about the rank! but the 'spirit' of challenge and bushido 'samurai spirit' if you carry that in your heart you will never feel upset if you lose..you will just try harder next time .. good luck.OSU!
