something that really makes me happy....

Being right after all. After 4 people of higher rank and one of equal rank but younger age told me it was a closed hand , the highest ranking of our dojo/owner/Renshi/6th dan told me that I'M RIGHT!
HA! Now I'm not normally this way when it comes to being right about something. But I KNEW this kata. This open hand move was DRILLED into my head by my instructor (who unfortunately isn't teaching there anymore-but he was also a "renshi") He taught me this kata and was very particular on the details. So the thought of being wrong about that was not sitting well with me. It was knawing at me ALL WEEK!

AND....I passed my written test!

Glad you passed.

I enjoy those moments too. Which tend to be too often than I'd like for them to happen

OH YESSSSSSSSSSS! LOVE that feeling when you get to say "HA!" right in people's faces. Not that you even need to, or will, but you CAN. (giggle.....) Congrats on passing the test. Another "HA!" moment. Good times, good times...

That's good news about the written test.. Now onto the next level.

It's a really nice thing that you learned your kata from such a good teacher that you were able to recognize the difference, and chose to do the move in a certain way.

Congrats on being another step closer to shodan. The challenge is steep yet rewarding. Don't give up, and even if you fail, remember that a failure is a man who gives up.

As to kata, the idea of "wrong" should apply to anything not effective for a particular purpose. Those who told you that you were wrong were claiming their variation as the the ONE variation (that in itself is wrong...).
