Sandan testing has been mentioned. My reaction, of course, was "Are you kidding me?!?"
I don't care if I never, ever grade again. Seriously. As long as the learning doesn't stop, I'm good.
My training has been spotty - other than the outside-the-dojo ancillary stuff. Solo tonfa training, however, is going well, but that and teaching are all I do in gi these days - thanks to my job schedule.
How ironic is it that just as I begin to settle into my "gotta get it in when I can so I don't get rusty" mindset, THIS gets put out there.
Truth is often stranger than fiction, I guess...
