After many years of training, you may begin to feel restless. Your training isn’t as satisfying. Your motivation wanes. Do what you must to fill the void. Go back to your roots. Cross train. Speak with your fellow karateka. Sometimes you need a little nudge to regain your focus.

I know that I’ve learned everything for the belt promotion test. And I’ve practiced it all. And technically ‘know’ it all. But at the same time, I don’t feel confident that I know it all. It’s so strange. :/

Good luck! You’ll be fine! It’s just testing nerves! If you know all your forms and are confident definitely don’t stress. It will only make it worse! Let us know of how it goes! :)

Good luck!

Had the privilege of training with the Afghanistan MMA team who will be competing this Friday in the SFL. Fucking studs.
