New BB belt were tied around our waist by our Sah bum nim vs. handing you your certicicate and belt and returning back to line.

All new BB had to line up, the higher dans were positioned in front of them face to face. Higher dans would then assume fighting stance and give you a good reverse punch in the stomach. Sounds over the top but most of the puches were pulled not to cause anyone to drop to their knees and puke. Long as you were tightned up and gave a good loud Kiap you were fine. It was more of an mental anticipation thing if any, no one ever got hurt. After the test like most dojo's we all go out to eat and drink. On my first dan test we over did it a little and after dinner and way to much celebrating a group of us went to a place called "Lou Turks" which was a strip club. We got to the club late and there was a lot of loud people at the entrance including our group which wanted to see the "girly show". If I remember right the bouncer at the door was a nine foot tall guy that was all business and at the drop of a hat was ready to fight. Well, people behind me started pushing and one thing led to another and out of know where he cracked me in the mouth with his shoe box size fist and down I went. I got sick, had the spins and a torn lip after what was suppose to be a great night. I was living with my girlfriend at the time and when they dropped me off she took me to the hospital where they had to stitch the inside of my lip and mouth. I got the worst of it but my instructor wasn't very compassionate to the higher dans for getting the newbies in trouble. Lesson learned:
1. never get loaded and mouth off to a nine foot bouncer drinking coffee.
2. Girly shows are over rated
3. Don't chug tequila, the worm isn't that good.
4. If someone says you should just go home after dinner listen to them.
5. Don't ever think you can out party a group of Veitnam Vets on a roll.
6. Hang your head out the window if you have the spins.
7. Drinkling and MA do not mix well.

Well, if you can learn by someone elses mistakes your way a head of the game, hope you do, 1982 was a long time ago.

Ed,
I'm about a month or so older than you, so does that make me the Grandaddy of the thread.

Actually that is depressing.
