Shameless self-promotion of my writing skills or lack there of.

Tiny Kicks

Hiya!!!! My son had his first karate test Yesterday. You could tell he was nervous. He has been going over his form and all of the strikes/kicks/combos that he has learned so far. He has been practicing every spare moment for the last three days straight.

We show up for the test and there are fifteen other children testing. Their ranks were mostly orange (trying for green) and whites (trying for yellow). Their was one girl that was testing for her red belt and one boy testing for his camo belt (they didn’t have those the first time I went through).

All of the kids did wonderful, some were down right impressive. The whole process took a little over an hour. My son broke a board with a front kick as his final task. Yes, he passed them all and has officially moved up in rank to yellow belt. Yeah, for Tyler…

I would also like to give a giant congratulations to all of the other children that advanced as well. Good work you guys, I would have difficulty memorizing some of those forms.

On a side note, I had to take a brief hiatus from my training. My new project has pretty much guaranteed that I won’t have time to do anything but work, eat and sleep for a couple of months (I am sure I will manage to get a little writing in, but you know what I mean). I hope to resume my studies sometime in October.

YAY Tyler!! I'm so proud of you! Way to go!! *HUGS* Just be careful and go easy on your old man. One day you may be able to whoop his...a- er, booty.

We also call my son Ty. Except for when he is in trouble. For those occasions he gets the full first, middle and last name treatment. :)
