I love bunkai, it's great with chicken.
Kata is great with beef.

I know I Razz you brother but I truly wish you luck.

I know what it's like to dedicate yourself to something and to get the recognition in such a way as a black belt is a big deal.

I wish you luck man and congratz on the journey not just the destination.

everything below mush be don in under 20 minutes, IF NOT = FAIL
300 front kicks (waist high min)
300 Jumping jacks
300 punches from a horse stance
200 push ups
100 crunches

That is 1200 things in 20 minutes.

20 minutes is 1200 seconds.
That is doing all that at a speed of one per second.
I would love to see that.

Well I would think you could do the punches, jumping jacks and probably the crunches quicker then 1 per second so that might allow you to bank some time for the others...
