Hey, it’s been forever since I’ve been able to show some progress, but in the March issue of Shodo Geijutsu, the magazine for my Shodo group, you can read that I made it to yukyu. This is up from 1 kyu. Check out the cover of the mag:

My name has a big old circle above it in the 1 kyu listing.

There are still two levels to go before shodan, but it means that dan is in reach, and possible, something I didn’t really even imagine three years ago when i started this with my daughter.

      1. I hadn’t been much for the reasons I talked about last time, but I have finally found work, moved to Ohio, and we have a place (and I bought a nice desk) so I’m ready to get to work ; )
        I did manage to get my 2nd Dan in kanji though!

      2. Snail mail.
        Which means I get like one week to practice stuff before I have to send it.
        Not ideal but now that I can actually practice each day it should be easier. I’ll just work on assignments when I can and then practice classics the rest of the time.

      1. Yeah, I studied Mandarin as an undergrad, lived in Taichung for a little over a year. My first experience with calligraphy was at Donghai University. I never touched it again for decades till just three years ago in Japan. Now I’m really enjoying it.
