I learned that we go up a belt color at the end of March, to Gold. I don't know if gold and yellow are the same or different.
Today we also learned some blocking skills...that I have to practice as it was a mind boggler! It's kinda like the yahoo avatar pose there on the side. I want to lean forward bot backwards on the knife hand block.
My instructor said something good today.
"Don't try to outdo the person next to you, and don't try to be a black belt when you are still learning. Some people are naturally athletic and pick up on moves right away, while others need more time to get it down pat. Do what you can and practice-practice-practice. Don't try to be a second rate someone else, concentrate on being a first rate YOU."
I liked that. I liked it a lot.

Until next time...
