Karate testing

Last night was Thing2's test for 3rd degree Orange. It was going to be a long test as all students, regardless of rank, had to do all the moves from White belt on up. She was in good spirits as we checked in and she warmed up. And then we saw Sensei Greg come in. Uh oh!

Sensei Greg was the instructor for the sparring class Thing2 took last year. She ended up getting sat down as she was hitting too hard and mouthing off. I'm pretty sure she was worried that he would remember... I just smiled and said to expect a good workout.

And I was right. By the time she was tested it was 2 and 1/4 hours later. That girl was tired. The higher belts still had another 45 minutes to go.

I think she did pretty good. We'll find out next week if she made it.
