    The date has been set.

    1st Dan examination with the new association. Grading panel consisting of a 3rd dan Shotokan, 2nd dan Shotokan/3rd dan goju and 4th dan shotokan. Feeling calmer about this one as it's only going to cost me £20 (not £150) and I've trained for years with the grading panel :)

    I've decided that I'm going to pick either Bassai Dai, Ji'in or Chinte as my elective kata. If I get the time and the means I'll try to post videos of me doing each to see if there's any consensus on which one seems to be best.

    the regular guys around here will know that I've been waiting a very long time for this. I'm very much looking forward to it.

    Shiho-Nage I'm okay to go.

    If you employ "Eye of the Tiger" as background and wear the rising sun headband you're guaranteed success.

    Best of luck.

    Please pass......Mitch cartwheeling whilst wearing a mini skirt is not something any of us need to see. No pressure though. :)

    Go for it dude, you can do it. :)
