Gradings are usually predictable affairs. Rarely are students even given the opportunity to grade if they were not ready to do so. That said, occasionally they will surprise you and exceed expectations. This is good.
This week’s end of year grading everyone on the mat, even those that were not grading, managed to do that.
It was a delight to watch and an excellent way to end the year’s training. Well, end the year’s official classes, at least, training will continue, just not in the dojo.
