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?

I have bad anxiety and stage fright. I could never do book reports and stand in front of the class to present it. But honestly when it comes to training I have confidence in my skill so it doesnt bother me to train or test in front of anyone. I think of it as there watching me and im good so there liking what they see. Its sounds kinda EGO like but it gets me past my stage fright. Just as in when I go in the cage I want the other people watch me rip the dudes head off, Ya know??

Confidence is the key, you dont have to convince anyone your the best one there but you do have to convince yourself that you belong there doing what your about to do.

It sounds to me that your overthinking the event and its hard not to, but over thinking causes alot of confusion because your brain is only able to absorb soo much at a time and only a percentage of that you are going to remember on the first try, if that makes sense.

I sugguest maybe run through your performance on the mats, have someone record it then study for yourself. Theres no better way than to see for yourself. It works for musicians and writers.
