Nerves are setting in…

Tag: GeneralEmily @ 8:05 am

Tomorrow is my black belt test. I feel pretty much prepared, but still a little worried. I have a good attitude about the whole thing. I’ve actually only been back to karate since September, so the opportunity to test is amazing. So, if for some reason I don’t pass, I’ll just try again in 6 months when I really feel comfortable. I feel pretty strongly about all sections (kicks, strikes, blocks, self-defense, one-steps, and breaking), but the sparring worries me because I haven’t done it for 10 years. It just feels foreign to me.
Hopefully Paul will come watch and take some pictures and videos. I’m going to try to get him to at least take videos of me breaking the boards and concrete (yipes)!
Check back Saturday to find out how I did. The test is from 4pm until midnight or so…bleh. If I can get out of bed Saturday, I’ll post about it 🙂

Wish me luck and send strength and safety prayers my way!
