Haven't posted in a while, been very busy with training, work and studies...

Anyway, would just like to share my success over the weekend... Passed my 3rd Dan grading in Tang Soo Do. Then we were award our Kyo Sa Nim (instructor) status, we were being assessed for a while, but weren't told about it as our Instructor wanted it to be a surprise...

Still recovering from it, but enjoyed the experience... Now just looking forward to getting back to training 🥋😃

Thanks all, gaining it is still sinking in... Half of me is already looking forward to studying for my 4th Dan (even though it's years away), the other half of me is thinking "what a 3rd Dan??? You've got to be kidding" haha
