What a road trip. It was the first ever for Shin Gane and we all had so much fun. We drove up to Chicago, trained and then drove back home. What a long day I got up at 2 am and did not get home until 1 am the following day. None of us slept on the ride up and back because the adrenalin and excitement was on high the entire trip. When we got to the dojo that morning we had less than an hour to stretch and get ready for class. We trained for three hours straight had a break for lunch that was two hours. Then when back and trained for another three hours with out stopping. There were seven states represented on the mat and one student from Arkansas tested for shodan. Very exciting to have the opportunity to watch the test.
