Black Belt Testing!

This weekend, David and I will be heading to Connecticut to test for our black belts in Tang Soo Do.  This is not the kind of thing I would have predicted myself doing at 47; that I am makes me quite happy, and that I’m doing so with my younger son makes me happier still.  The last several months have been devoted to ever-more-stringent training, which has taken up most of my time and attention.  Thanks to everyone at Triumph Karate in Kingston and Saugerties, NY, for helping David and I in our preparation, especially Sa Bom Nim Rodney Batista.

Once the test is past, more normal service at this blog will resume.

David regards my feeble efforts to spar him with the skepticism they so richly deserve…
