Congratulations to both George and Bill Thomsen on their promotions. Neither brother had any clue they were going to test. I wish I could’ve had a camera to capture their suprised looks – they were priceless!
This very thing happened to me when I tested for Black Belt. I was attending a regional meeting in Ogden when Mr. Mills said “get out on the floor”. We didn’t even have our gi’s (uniforms). That was an experience I will never forget.
In many ways I prefer the surprise test. It keeps you honest in your training. Always come to class as if that’s the day you’re going to test. When you treat your workouts this way, it pushes you to always do your best.
Remember, you just never know …
