testing for rank
I didn't know where exactly to post this so I'm posting it here. I am testing for green belt on Nov. 3. I am already kind of nervous b/c i'm coming back from an injury as most of you know. Unfortunately my teacher feels that we have to test in a group, helps our concentration or something. While I understand this in theory, I don't like it in practice because it doesn't help me work on concentration, it helps me feel more scared of screwing up. Also there is a lot of memorization involved. We seem to get tested way more on memorization than on applied skill. If anyone has had to test in front of a bunch of people, could you pass on to me how you tuned them all out and concentrated on what you were trying to do?
