Me accepting my Black Belt and certificate from Grand Master The'.
Lucky enough to test after two other women who tested to 5th degree black. This test saw the most women testing in a black rank ever for our area. I am second left standing with my sword pointing down. My girl Kim is on the end with her sais.
I'm just glad I'm not running back home. I'm from New Hampshire, which is about as hilly and mountain-y as you can get. New Jersey's much flatter. I'm not sure I'd have ever gotten off the treadmill back home.
Way to go on your Kung Fu achievements! I took Kung Fu for a few years (I was a purple sash in our rankings--a fairly advanced beginner) but had to give it up when I moved away for school, but I really liked it while I did it. Way to go! 2307 days ago
Hey TARAKY!! There is a Shaolin Warriors group here and one other member of our system here. Thanks for leaving a message! Many of my fellow black belts are testing to 2nd next month. We just finished our weight vest training. So glad you're here! 2348 days ago
