Tonight was the second night of the promotion, in which we went over kata and a few other things we're supposed to know, and also talked about our essays. I only had to do seven of the 16 katas I know. (For those who might know them, they included Pinan #5, Sanchin, Geki Sai Dai, Tsuki No, Sai-Ha, Tensho, and Kenshikai Kata #4.) But I felt I was very strong in my form and spirit, and I did all the other stuff as well.
In general, I am very pleased with how the second night went. And the black belts who observed were effusive in their praise, which was good to hear. (We really do have some fantastic black belts in our discipline....)
