I did my Wansu Kata test last night at karate, and I passed! I am halfway to being a brown belt. On Tuesday I have a sparring test, but you do not have to win, you just cannot give up. Hopefully, I will pass that! I am on my way to be an advanced rank!
I learned that at the very last yell in Wansu when you strike, you have to clamp your mouth shut after you yell, so you do not look like a slack-jawed idiot. (Look it up, pretty interesting story behind the saying ‘a slack-jawed idiot’)
Also, I learned that I will be a brown belt for one year, six months is learning two katas: Chinto and Kusanku, and then six months as a black belt candidate.
If I pass my sparring test, I will be a brown belt on Thursday!
