Belt Test

Filed under: Martial Arts — mlah @ 11:17 pm

tomorrow is a big day. i take a red belt test. should be very rough. the speed kicks scare me the most. only 15 seconds, per kick per leg. which i think works out to 2 and a half minutes of non stop kicking. timed and counted.

i know my forms. but you can bet i’ll goof on at least one and have to repeat it.

i know my strikes. jumping back side kick, and jumping back spin kicks will be real pains in the ass as always.

i know my stances and blocks but will definitely go through all of those again in the morning.

i know my one step sparring and self defense. i’m worried about the one step sparring though. i tend to hit too hard on 2 particualr moves and knock the arm out of the way, when the next thing i have to do is grab it. i have to remember to not do that. the self defense techniques are fun. breaking a full nelson is so sweet.

sparring will be rough. that all depends on who he has come to fight me. it could be easy, it could be uber tough. being that this is for a red belt. i’m betting it will be rough.

i saw my boards. he showed me the huge stack of boards just a few minutes ago that i have to break. punch, knife hand, palm strike, back spin kick, and axe kick. that’ll hurt, but it has to be done.

painkiller and energy drinks for breakfast. test at 1:30.

i’ll let y’all know how i do.


  1. Good Luck. Will be rooting for you!! 🙂

  2. C’mon, don’t be a wus!!!! 😉

    Good luck. I may be there-Gretel got grounded though, so I don’t know if bringing her would constitute a reward.

    Hey, have a friend videotape it so you can do a Jackie Chan bit on the Internet……. or at least, someday, to show your grandkids!
