Nidan Test


It was pretty long and ridiculous.
They test more on your teaching ability than actual ability I feel, they'd ask questions like "what angle should your feet be at after the second pivot of ____ technique?"

The name was in Japanese. How hard is that?

Then they'd ask "how would you fall if ste did ____ to you?"

Kareem-san studied for this 2nd degree blackbelt test for 10 years, and for the last year woke up at 6am every day except for Saturday and drove for 40 minutes to the dojo to practice.

I hope he passes!

  1. I can just see the 10-year montage broken down into 30 short seconds. Kareem-san is the definition of discipline and dedication, man.
