I just got my brown belt a week ago. I wasn't expecting it or anything, Sensi came out in front of the class and presented it to me. Later I was helping out my other Sensi with his house renovations (drywall and stuff) he told me they had talked and decided I was ready. It's going to be a good year or two before my black belt grading though. I'm a bit overwhelmed and excited at the same time.

Crash

I am so happy for you getting you Brown belt, I presume this is your 1st Kyu grade, May I say don't see it as nearing the end, see it as nearing the start.

Too many Brown belts stay at this grade and never go to Shodan or they leave before ever getting near it. I can tell by you message you are someone like myself who sees the journey infront of you.

Remember

Karate is like hot water. If you do not give heat constantly it will again become cold.

Well Done
