I just wanted to take a moment and congratulate all the successful people who graded this past weekend for new belt ranks, and to those successful black belt who passed their pre-test exams.
Grading is such an important part of your training. At first it can make you very nervous, but over time the nerves change and become a positive energy to drive you to new levels! I remember many of my different tests and promotions. They are all part of a very exciting journey.
Black Belt grading weekend is fast approaching too. Check with your teachers to make sure you have everything in order. Also get you application papers in asap. It will be quite the exciting time!
