Eventually, I was ‘ready’ to take the famous Bob Breen Academy Black Belt test. By far this was the most difficult and challenging belt grading I have ever taken in any of the martial arts I have studied, as Guru Bob doesn't just test you technically, he tests you mentally and on specific things relevant to just you.
I was tested and challenged to an extent where a week after the grading I was still spending large chunks of the day analysing what had happened. This feeling wasn't isolated to just me - all his Black Belts go through this.
