I had my half-black belt test today. I know you're probably thinking what is half-black? No, it's not gray. It is a belt with a black stripe and a red stripe. It is the belt in between red and black. It was a very long test ... at least it seemed that way to me. Although it is only a fraction of the length of my next test though. I was pretty tried after this test. But in the end I passed. My next test will be about an hour of just me doing every kick I've learned, every basic (punching & kicking routines) from every belt, and some stuff that I have to make up myself. The stuff that I will have to make up is three different routines of 20 hand strikes/blocks in 5 seconds and three different routines of 10 kicks in 5 seconds. There is no way I could do it all yet, but I'll try to get there over the summer. I'm surprised that I have come as far as I have. It feels good to know that I am getting better at Tae Soo Do.
