Ashton and I took our test this weekend for our next belt. We first had to do a pre-test in front our our sensei and class on Thursday, and after our evaluations we were told if we could go test with the Grand Master.
The dojo was about an hour away, so we packed everyone up and made our way to the test. It was definitely an experience. Ashton and I were the first to be called up. This being our first karate testing experience I was a little nervous. You have to greet the judges in japanese and thank them and bow and then the test starts. Once we got going it was no problem.
After we watched everyone we had a 2 minute sparring test. By this time it was around 3:00 (we had been there for 3 hours) and I was starting to feel hungry. Good thing the sparring was only 2 minutes because I was low on energy at this point.
Ashton and I both did very good and we will get our results in 2 week.
All 4 boys played in the bath together when we got home. It was fun to watch:)
