I Did a Karate Thing



Thursday night I took and passed my black belt test in Tang Soo Do karate. I've spent a ridiculous amount of time over the past six years working toward this. I am tired and I hurt a lot.

I have some videos of some of the cool parts of the test, but I'll start figuring out posting those tomorrow.

Very cool, congrats!

So is the test breaking bricks & boards or is that just Hollywood stuff?

We do do breaking. It is actually a good measure of good technique. I have done board breaking for all of my tests except for my first. When you go for black belt you also break a brick. I am happy to report that I broke it! And that is one of the videos I will work on putting up.

Nice! Sounds like a very rewarding accomplishment.
