My name is BriAnne, and I train in WTF Tae Kwon Do. I just turned 32, and started training about 18 months ago. I was a white belt for a ridiculously long time (5 months), because I started at a class at the local community center, and then my instructor started his own school, so it took 3 months after that before I actually tested up. When he tied on my yellow belt, he said, "Finally, right?"
I just tested for my high blue belt yesterday, which with our belt progression (different dojangs have different belts, I've discovered) means I've got about another 15-18 months - assuming I test every 3 months - until I get my first degree black belt.
I love the sport, and I train 4-5 times a week. Sometimes, I feel like when I'm out on the mats is the only time I really feel completely sane. :-)
