    Graded to shodan this weekend.

    Proud, but humbled. In my mind the grading board affirmed I know the alphabet and some basic punctuation. Next challenge, making a few words! So much to judo, and I've only just scratched the surface...

    I've enjoyed this (and the old) forum since I started judo! Cheers!

    An oldie, but goodie: The award of SHODAN indicates that the student is sincere in following a martial art and martial ways. It is the first serious step on an endless path of discovery and enquiry.
