The 2011 Spring Grading was held at the Kuramae dojo. It was great to see everyone and be amoungst all the cheering. So much of this is about trying your best and supporting everyone around you. It makes a huge difference when everyone is behind you. Good to see many international members also today all trying their best and all enjoying themselves. I congratulate all the students who were tested for their black belts today. It's always a very emotional time to see people reach a wonderful milestone. As Yamaguchi-sensei always says, this is a wonderful journey you take and it never ends. With the support of all your family and friends , you just keep moving forward and look ahead to find what you are looking for.
