I got my #3 stripe! I am ready for graduation. Well, at least I can do all the things I am supposed to do. I just need to get my do bak back from the alterations shop, then I am ready!
It sounds juvenile that I am excited about the new belt, but I really am.
Tonight’s class we went over and over the form. It was exhausting, but in a good way. By the end of class, by gluts were shaking from holding the back stances and trying to land from the round kick into the back stance. That takes a lot more control than it looks like it should take. I even belted out my kihaps!
The one thing I have noticed, though, is that instead of sweating less in class, I am sweating more. I thought that once my body started getting used to the activity I would get less sweaty. Instead, as I get stronger I work harder and subsequently get sweatier. Oh well, at least I am burning calories and having fun doing it!
