I have some T-terrific news. My grandson is - a second degree black-belt in Choi Kwang Do! Ta-dah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Lining up in the right place to begin 2 1/2 hours of testing.
He tested Saturday afternoon - at 4 pm - 6:30 pm - straight through. At the end he frank a quart of Power Aid.
He had to do all his patterns, blocks, and speed drills for 18 colors that he did for his first degree - he had to do and remember them all over again. And they made them do it more than once.
Then he had to do all his patterns, blocks, and speed drill for 9 colors for his second degree. Some of his friends - great role models.
I am just proud of him. It takes 3 years to get your first degree. Three years to get your second degree. And before that he went all the way though Tiny Tigers two years. His 4th degree instructor!
He has been working 8 years - since he was four. And he has decided to go for his third degree - another 3 years. And then he will have to remember his first two degrees moves as well as his six - only six - new ones.
He is a pretty tough kid - he doesn't look like it until you feel his arm muscles and see his 8 pack! He was sweating bullets.
Anyway kudos to him. He did it. It can never be taken away from him. And he's really one tough dude. Thanks for letting me brag. He worked hard for this.
Disco's Corner of the world:
I will tell you another fact about myself. My boy is my love. I will let him do just about anything to me during the day. He lets me do about anything to him during the dad too. I can lick and kiss him all day and he won't let anyone else in the world do it.
But at night I get very protective of the bed and my toys. I will growl and bite like crazy. I think I must have some kind of mental illness in my breed.
DO YOU THINK IT IS IN OUR BREED? I am half chihuahua and half Jack Russell (that part saves me!)
