Grand Master Sun Ki Chong decided he wanted to help Vickie put on her new blue belt...what an honor!

Congratulations Shelly and Vickie, Ous.

Thanks for sharing. Man, those Korean schools sure do go thru the wood.
Who gets to to take the scraps home for the fireplace ?

I remember a young girl (20 or so) asking my sensei if those keiko gi pants came in different models, because her current one made her *** look fat.
Anyway, congratulations!

Sometimes we take our boards home as "souvenirs" Both Vickie and I each have at least 1 board!

Congrats to both you and your daughter!

What do you get to learn as a red belt? What did you have to do (besides breaking with a recently healed foot!?) for your test?

I will be learning Palgwe Chil (Jil) Jang form
More new 1-step sparring
how to properly execute a knife hand strike for my board breaking technique
How to do a hook kick...which for me will be near impossible since I have arthritis in my hips...I can barely do a roundhouse let alone a hook kick LOL

This will be the start of my preperation for earning my black belt in April...YAY! 9 months away!

Oh I forgot to answer what I did for testing...I had to do my form, 1-step sparring, no contact sparring, and board breaking
