    Smile Earned my Yellow Belt :)

    Hello everyone!

    I just wanted to post that I passed my test for my yellow belt on Monday! Tonight was the belt ceremony. This was an incredible moment for me seeing that it is my first earned belt. I had a friend take photos but unfortunately they are all blurry except for a couple, haha... Oh well. I do have a good shot of me taking the kick from my instructor. Blurred as I try not to fold in half haha..

    Take care everyone! I look forward to sharing more of my milestones in the wonderful journey through the art of Kenpo.

    Well done sir!

    "The Journey of a thousand miles begins with but a signle step..."

    I hear a lot about these "promotional kicks" where the instructor kicks you when you get promoted...Got me thinking, how come I get kicked in EVERY class? LOL

    Keep us posted!
    The above is just my opinion.

    You get kicked when you get your yellow belt? Wow, my school only gives those out at brown and black belt. Congrats!
