Going for my masters tests
For anyone that is interested in Martial arts, I study 3 martial arts (Ju Jitsu, Aikido and Tang Soo Do).
Whilst I only hold an Orange with green tag belt in tang soo do, I hold a black belt 3rd dan in both Aikido and Ju Jitsu. Having studied both japanese for a total of 18 years now (started both when I was 6), I am happy to say that I am ready for the next step in both.
After 4 years as a 3rd dan in Ju Jitsu, I shall be taking my masters test (behind closed doors) and going for my 4th dan at the end of next month. If successful, my pocket shall be £500 lighter, but I shall be so much more prouder to officially be a master of the art.
And after 6 years as a 3rd dan in aikido (I neglected my studies for 2 years of it) I shall be going for my 4th dan in February. they may seem a little while off, but I am just too excited as I found out today! :D
Wish me luck! :D
