Another Adventure in Karate

Posted on March 26, 2009. Filed under: Karate | Tags: , , , |

After much debate over whether he would be allowed to or not (his behavior has been pretty rough the past 2 weeks), my little guy successfully tested for his next belt in karate last night!  He is now a neon orange belt (he is a Dragon right now – all their belts are neon to distinguish them from the full belts the older kids get in Eagles and the adult belts – we’re not sure how Sensei is going to manage neon brown when we get to that level).  He had a great time, and most of his friends tested also, so they all got to sport new belts together.  We didn’t get any good pics of the test itself, but here is the little guy proudly posing after the test:

I decided to wait until next testing cycle to test for my orange belt, since I still need to work on double roundhouse kicks and shoulder rolls (where you throw yourself into a roll along your shoulder and back, then jump back up – I think I’ve finally got the roll, but the jumping back up is not as easy as it looks 😉 ).
