    Shodan in 14 "easy" years....

    How to get Ikkyu in 14 years.
    =============================
    * 1993 - Enter the Dojo as a newbie !
    * 1995 May - Watchett Seminar - Get ni-kyu !
    * 1997 August - leave uni
    ** miss lots of Kendo **
    * 2000 January - first child is born
    ** miss lots of Kendo **
    * 2006 March - second child is born
    ** miss lots of Kendo **
    **procrastinate even more**
    * 2006 October - Get car
    ** start Kendo [no excuses]**
    * 2007 June - Attend first ever shiai
    * 15th 2007 July - Stoke Seminar - where it was inconceivable that my hiatus between grading was so long and I was presumed to be only 12 years old - ikkyu!!!!!
    * 21st October 2007 - Mumeishi grading - where it just went like a dream, practically no nerves in the fencing with the only downside getting confused on the kata about who was Uchidachi and who was Shidachi but luckily they realised my faltered step into left jodan was misunderstanding of the instructions not incompetence. Still got paired with the teens, it must be my youthful good lucks. Well done to all those that passed!
