Amid the Bustle
Oh! I forgot to share!
Amid the mayhem and crap-o-la-ness of the last couple of weeks, something cool happened and I've forgotten to share it here.
Without any hoopala or fireworks, I passed my Tae Kwon Do test for yellow belt. I tested in front of Mr. B, our instructor, prior to the miscarriage but was still supposed to test in front of Grandmaster Hwang for the actual promotion test. I couldn't do the test with Grandmaster Hwang because I'd had the d&c the day before and had been told I needed to rest for at least 24 hours.
I'd considered going to the test and asking to just do one example of each of the techniques but Mrs. B, our other instructor, said they'd just videotape me doing the techniques and once GMH reviewed the tape, I'd promote officially.
Well, last Friday when I went in to class, Mrs. B gave me my belt and material very unceremoniously prior to the start of class and told me I could put it on. Cool.
I still have to do the videotaping but I'm no longer a white belt. Now instead of doing shoulder tag and foot tag, I will begin actual sparring, punching and kicking people etc. Double cool.
I know it's probably queer for a 36 year old previously non-athletic woman to be excited about something like this but I am.
You're still not getting any pictures of me in my uniform though.
