I passed my 4th kyu Orange belt grading the other day and am pretty pleased. The belts from now on start getting darker (Green, Blue, Brown) so I'm starting to feel less of a complete novice and more like an advanced novice.
For those interested the syllabus is pasted below

• O-uchi-gari into Ko-uchi -gari
• Ko-uchi-gari into O-soto-gari or O-soto-gake

Getting a kyu grade is like being in school recital. No one cares except your parents, and even they are secretly pleading for something to shut you up so they can stop feigning interest.
Calm down, it's only ones and zeros.

Congratulations! I remember when I was an orange belt (I was about 13 or 14, there were no junior grades then or other kids in my club). I remember it because I visited the Budokwai and practised with the national coach, Geoff Gleeson. He was always friendly to me but he rubbed a lot of people the wrong way.

Ignore Tom, you should be proud, ESPECIALLY if this spurns you on to keep training!!!!! Keep going & never stop!!!!
(pls note: as STAFF of Bullshido, he shouldn't be such a **** about someone training in a "real" art like Judo. For Shame!)
"Judo is a study of techniques with which you may kill if you wish to kill, injure if you wish to injure, subdue if you wish to subdue, and, when attacked, defend yourself" - Jigoro Kano (1889)
***Was this quote "taken out of context"?***
"The judoist has no time to allow himself a margin for error, especially in a situation upon which his or another person's very life depends...."
~ The Secret of Judo (Jiichi Watanabe & Lindy Avakian), p.19
"Hope is not a method... nor is enthusiasm."
~ Brigadier General Gordon Toney
