I went through the same thing, it's more ritual then anything dangerous. I've been hit much harder in sparring then the push kick I got at promotion.

I'm not saying it was any fun, but it's not bad enough to put you down for more the a second.

Ha, I just found a pic of me getting my very first "pain of birth" strike as I got promoted to yellow belt, way back on November 26 1984:
