PostPosted: Mon Aug 05, 2019 9:58 am    Post subject: Zach and I just passed our latest tests! Reply with quote

Back at the beginning of July, Zach earned his junior 3rd kyu, which in our instructor's school, covers most of the material for senior 9th kyu and a little of the material for other advanced ranks. After that, he moved up to to the 7-12 year old beginner's class, and our CI was having him help other white belts with our yakusoku kumite and kanshiwa kata. When he actually turned 7, both of us moved to a "7+" class at our local rec center taught by a couple of his black belts (his girlfriend [now fiancee'] is a 3rd dan, and the other instructor is a 4th dan).

Well, last Wednesday, Heather Sensei told us that we would both be testing for our next belts, and Zach was really nervous... but he passed! The black belt in charge of our groups primarily told us to watch where our eyes were going, but we all looked pretty solid in our techniques (well, I'd interpret that as "rank appropriate").

At the end of the testing, our CI awarded Zach his senior kukyu, and awarded me my shichikyu. Now I get to focus on the whole next set of kumite drills for my rokkyu.

Here's me and Zach looking proud with our new certificates:

More like, "The family that trains together, is more likely to kick each other in the head."
