TF-kinda funny you say you are going to have to live up to it. I think that you HAVE BEEN living up to it already. JMO.

Well done, John. Most hearty of congratulations on taking that big step along the martial road.

I reckon the fact that you feel you need to live up to it is a very positive sign indeed. If nothing else it prevents that period of 'laurel sitting' that many go through when they achieve a goal.

thanks everyone.
Mark, what I am feeling is , well, an obligation.

My instructor, who has NEVER double tapped one of her black belts, did it to me.

So now I have to live up to that faith, to BE the instructor she thinks I am.
