    After starting at Ju-kyu, and double promoting at last exam, today, I went from nanakyu to rokyu.

    I've seen some Okinawans wear them almost as short. But I've seen some TKD people in a shorts and t-shirt like dobak, so I guess it's all relative.

    Maybe it's not a joking subject, but I can't help but point out he's in Texas and wearing what we Yankees call "flood pants".

    But in all seriousness short karate pants are not uncommon.

    Sometimes called "high waters" when I was a kid. Maybe that was more an NY thing.

    I hope everyone is safe. I hear this is way worse than hurricane Katrina.

    I hope your sister is alright, what with hurricane Harvey and all the flooding in Houston that's been happening since it hit.
