    last friday 8/8/08 i was asked to sit in on a student of ours black belt test, the student did well and past, whle my sensei was standing up i the front talking to him he called me and two others that tested for our black belts at the same time a couple of years ago. he presented us with certificates for the rank of black belt nidan it gave us all a heart rush. we were not expecting it, to us being a black belt means that we help our sensei in teaching the classes we never thought we would recieve that honor on that night.
