Shodo 9/22/2016


I have another ranking test in kana this month. If I pass this I will join the ranks of the Dan finally. This probably won’t be the one I turn in but I thought it looked a little interesting with a really saturated brush. The downside is that some of the strokes don’t start out as sharply as they should.

  1. Looks pretty good to me. I’ve been plodding along for two years now, and finally reached 4 kyu. So I’m really jealous of your proximity to dan (in a totally supportive and actually kind of inspired… jealous… way). Good luck! hope you pass.


    1. Thanks for the message! I just found out today that my kanji got bumped up to pre-Dan this month, too.
      I guess it all just comes down to consistent practice. For the first year I did shodo nearly every day for about 2 hours. These days with the increasing focus I’m placing on my art along with the wife getting a part-time job, I haven’t had that luxury unfortunately, so I feel like my actual progress is stagnating.
      Meh, I’ll find the time again one day.
