    Hey guys, it's been a while! I just realized I never did post that video. I'll have to check to see where I saved it and see if I can get it posted. Whoops.

    I did my 2 hour class on August 18 and it was exhausting. Two hours of just going through Taegeuk 1-8 very slowly as a group. We would start over anytime someone messed up, so some forms took a long time to get through. At the end, we were all randomly assigned a form, and all 9 of us did forms facing a different direction. I was facing diagonally toward the back of the mat. It was crazy...but I just closed my eyes and started Taegeuk 5 and once I was comfortable, I just kept going with my eyes open lol. It was fun! I was the only person I think who finished and I even ended in my same spot.

    Today...I got my final white tip. I am approved to do my last maintenance test and that will get me my last tip on this belt. Black Belt testing is now so close I'm feeling nervous. I have designed (with masters help of course) three of my own one step sparring techniques and have "improved a lot" with forms and board breaking. My tip test today was Taegeuk 4, 7, and 8. I got a little feedback on something to improve in 7 just to make it look better, but my Master was very pleased.

    Next 2 hour class is October 6. Then Black Belt testing on Nov 10. I am SO ready and excited, but also terrified lol.
