I’m a bit behind in posting because work has become very busy as of late and when I have a moment to myself I forget that I want keep some memory of what’s happened in class.
From last week -
Dave was worn to the bone. He got a tip that there was some free firewood and he filled up his trailer and truck and still decided to come to class the same day. While he yawned his way through class Teacher asked him about testing. Dave said that he was ready to go, so Teacher asked if he could do the test that night. He nodded his head wearily (I might be projecting…) and, boom, the test commenced during the 2nd hour.
Teacher had everyone sit down, which is standard for his type of testing, but had Dave remain standing. The additional surprise being that he had me remain standing as well. I presumed that we’d start with sparring, but that was unusual because this was just Dave’s Green belt. So Teacher had me join him at the head of the mat to help in testing. To be specific he was actually using Dave’s test to educate me to the process.
During the test he would periodically turn to ask me what was next. To which he received my blank look. I think I made it abundantly clear that I cannot remember what was on tests, thus my making everyone fight way before it was required.
Poor Dave had to do a lot of waiting while Teacher and I mumbled together. I actually apologized a few times because I just didn’t know what Teacher was asking. Derp!
