Tomorrow I have a meeting with one of my karate Sensei's (the one that speaks some English!) to "talk about my schedule". By this he means how long I will be in Japan, when I am free to go to the dojo and, yays, about getting my brown and black belts. The brown is apparently required to attend the other classes, since they are of a higher level than the ones I have been going to. The black is still a long way off, and I will have to continue to work my arse off, but it will be great to have something to work towards.
