First of two Black Belt tests, 6 months apart. Translates into 6 months of sticking with it (instead of just getting the belt to say you have it and quitting) and letting them make sure it doesn't go to your head and you don't become [more of] an *******.

What system?

And remember, with today's fashion trends a nice brown belt will be MUCH more useful.

Depends on how many show up. Usually one of the last parts of the test is sparring, several lower belts one or two at a time consecutively (Usually not more than a total of 6 or 7 60 second rounds) and then at least two black belts consecutively (all black belts there have the option to participate)

Breaking anything (on purpose)?

We used to practice for a particular format of test, just as a matter of looking good for the audience. Then we would end up at a combined school test and one of the masters would change things up and we would run out of boards, bricks, good sparring partners, technique demonstrations, or skip some of the same that we were looking forward to.

"Ready as I'm going to be." was as good as that ever became. Tests just within our school were actually enjoyable, if a bit long.

Good luck!

Good skill, I went through 6 blackbelt testings and the first one is always the roughest. When that belt is tied around your waste all of the blood, sweat and tears is worth it.
