    Default I tested last night!!

    So I tested for 2nd black last night in Revere MA at Revere Kenpo Karate Accademy. It was a long a grueling test.. There where 8 of us testing.. I was the testing for the highest rank at this test, so the board told me "All eyes are on you, seeings how you are the highest testing rank."
    It went really well.. There was a part in stick set that I had a brain fart and had a long pause before i could continue..lol
    I lit it up when i performed long form 5..

    for techniques they paired me up with a 5th black instructor from RKKA, Mr. Van.. I did really will with the weapon attacks only got stabbed in the random attacks once

    I did rather well with the sparing and got a lot of compliments on the two on me sparing, unfortunatly i think that i rocked a kid pretty well.. oops..

    i was sucking wind so bad at the end of the test it was not funny...lol but i can laugh now..heheh

    a coulple of the brown belts testing said that Mr. Van and I where really killing each other and they could not wait until they could perform that way.. that made me feel good.

    the evaulation board had told me at the end that i had the best performance of the night..

    im so sore today but it is all worth it...

    i have photos from after the test (no one is allowed to watch the test except the board) i will get them up soon..

    sorry i havent posted in a while, life has been crazy. Plus we have been planing our wedding that is happening next month

    Congrats! I am glad that it was a great experience for you. I always enjoy belt tests, they really test your limits and show you how far you have come since the last test.

    Good job on your test!

He straightens it back to normal, and starts speaking to himself) "Something's amiss here... hmm, let me run through it. Ho, haha, guard, turn, parry, dodge, spin, ha, thrust." (beak bends again) "Got it." (straightens beak, and starts his fighting moves again.) "Ho! Haha! Guard! Turn! Parry! Dodge! Spin!"
