    Just wanted to share my share my good news (thought I posted it, but I guess I was wrong)...

    Tested for, and was awarded, my 3rd Dan in Tang Soo Do. I was also awarded my Kyo Sa (instructor) status - this was a surprise to the 3 of us that received it.

    While it's exciting that I'm now training for my 4th Dan I am glad that I don't have to do another grading for a good few years, haha :D

    Congrats, bro. Keep up the good work.

    I remember back at the beginning of the year when you were told you would be testing by years end. Went by quick, didn’t it?

    And nice flying sidekick in the avatar.

    I study Tang Soo Do, just under 3 years from my 2nd Dan (due to how the grading fell)... For my 2nd Dan it was just over 2 years from my 1st Dan (again due to how the grading fell) :)

    Thanks mate... It think it was the 3rd attempt for the jumping side kick :)

    I have to say it did go by fast, and November felt like it was only a week, haha...
