Does this mean you're getting your Naginata grading???

Probably not. It's all up to my sensei, but I doubt she will pull the strings necessary.

Would you like to? I mean, thats probably the most important question :)

Yes... but if I'm not ready for it, then I shouldn't. There's also a question of the whole politeness thing. I'm not supposed to go to other dojos just to grade, I think...

Fair enough. I was under the impression that to get a higher grade, you *needed* to go to another dojo, as you needed several judges of high enough grade...but my memory is cracked, some times :)

I *do* need to go to another dojo. That is the catch 22 of being a good, polite and submissive student of a violent art. :)

But isnt part of the process leaving "home" to find wisdom on the outside?

I know you'll make the right decision. Just dont let an opportunity pass you by.

It's all very complicated.

All I know is that I don't actually have to make the decision - it's in the hands of my sensei.

Oh, so true...

Good luck, and happy zooming to you :)

I mean, it's not like I think that you will - but in all the excitement and everything...

Hey, why are you leaving the country on my birthday?

I must contemplate the significance of this....

:)

Lucky you!

Congratulations, what's the occasion?
You'll have to blather all about it.
In fact I ought to interrogate Nikkia about her trip some time, or god forbid, get off my lethargy and read her lj....

Nah, me journal's just full of swear words and pictures of breasts drawn in texta.

Are you planning on hitting the rando ofu za raisingu saan anytime soon? You're leaving the UK but for where, she asks?

Not for a year or two...
Brian tells me he might look for work there 2005 or 2006, so when he does, I'll aim to get there too.
For now I'll have to settle with 19 days in China....
Beijing at the New Year's festival.
Xi'an and the terracotta army,
Shanghai and it's temples.
Hong Kong for retail fun.
Yes, I am gloating.

If you travel through Henan province, there's a little valley well worth visiting. Apparently has some kind of temple in it... "Shao Lin" or something like that... :P
