KDGIRL49, Good Luck on your promotion test Saturday. You will do well I am sure.

I promoted for my blue belt on Sat. I was Ok until I got there and found out that I was one of TWO testing. It went really good though. The testing was much faster paced and b/c of rank I was able to do required drills with my Master(Whom I get to practice with at least once a week, not another student that I have never done them with before.)
The other student was a 7-8 year old white belt promoting to yellow. I was happy to do some extra forms that I had learned that are not req. by the studio though, and we were able to do some extra breaks. which made the other kid happy.

Soo to the comment of "think I am only person in room"....I pretty much was.

Again Good Luck this weekend

Cougar ! Best of Luck to you as well ! My last testing before this one, there were 2nd degree black belts & about 20 other belts testing with me. Grand master watching, three other masters walking around , looking to see what they can make you feel nervous about.

I set my mind to " I am the only person in the room" and I just went through all my forms, without fail. I felt calm. Just incase you get nervous. Picture yourself alone in the room, just doing your forms, with power and snapp!

Look forward to how your testing went!

Cougar: Congrats, and keep up the hard work. Next fall will be here before you know it.

Iwantitin2010: Congrats to you also, it a great feeling to have the whole family involved. Daughter is 1st degree and wife is brown, she should be ready to test for her black next spring.

I cannot test for 3rd degree until feb 2012, but I have much to learn before then.

Congrats, IWANTITIN2010 in your promotion. I am looking forward to the point in time when I will get to promote for my Blackbelt. I was informed that if I keep up with the amount of time that I am puttung in to training, I could expect to go for my BB promotion in the fall of next year. I have mastered 9 forms and 2 drills. To promote I must learn 20 more forms and 4 more drills. Train Train Train!!

Sorry I took so long to respond! Yes, I did promote on Sat 5/22 to a Green belt. Which for my style is a 6th Gup. I am already preparing to go for my next promotion in July to a Blue belt.

Yesterday I just got my BB! We tested a couple of weeks ago, and yesterday was the ceremony. I didn't expect to feel as good as I did! So today I took the whole family to the Photo studio and we got a family portrait in our BB! (my little girl was in her white belt) It was the first family photo in about 3 years! I'm going to put one picture up at work and one at home as a reminder of our efforts!

Today I will track my food and exercise. This I will do for myself.

Cougar: If you are testing today, good luck.

Our next testing is July 17, I am planning to mid-term. Not sure if anyone else does this? After we get our BB we have to do a minimum number of mid-terms and earn points toward our next rank. This will be my first as 2nd degree, and one step closer to 3rd.

I advanced a week ago from Blue to Advanced Blue. My next test is somewhere in the future, which I can't see right now.
