Amongst some very good other entries, was this little nugget -

http://prairiemartialarts.blogspot.com/

"Last Friday my wife and I took the opportunity to invite all of my students over for dinner. It was an enjoyable evening of friendship and food and a beautiful spring night. In additon to that my instructor Master Tom Duncan took the opportunity and presented certificates to two people that had passed dan testing this year. I was fortunate to be one of those people. I say fortunate for a couple of reasons. The first reason is because I failed my third dan test in October of last year. It was a tremendous disappointment. I was successful on my breaks and my sparring but came up short on my forms. I felt I managed to redeem myself a bit by winning the forms portion of the tournament the day after the test. It did not change the fact that I would have to wait at least 6 months to retest. I resolved myself to train harder and more diligently that I ever had. In the end it paid off. A humbling public failure was an opportunity test my resolve. I was not expecting my test to last 6 months, but it did."

Belated congrats to the new 3rd dan!
