On January 25th, I tested, and passed, the test I took for my Yellow Belt and passed! :D I should have tested back in the summer but since I kept being gone during testing, I had to wait until this day. It was a tiring test but I feel good about it and it was a lot of fun. I broke a board with a palm strike and did takedowns with my sister(I also got to spar a little). I was, of course, nervous but I did well and now I have learned my newest form, Il Jang. :D

I got my belt on the Thursday after my test (I'd went that Monday but it hadn't arrived yet). When you get a new belt(or stripe) you go up to the front and the main instructor gives you a certificate and if you're getting a new belt, has you take your old one off and ties your new one on for you. I love having a new color! :D
My Yellow Belt and Certificate :) :D
I've done several things for Taekwondo lately in and around testing time. On the Monday after test, I did some sparring and even though I still have much to learn, I did a whole lot better, especially since I was fighting quite a lot of higher ranking people. I also went over my testing form tonight with the instructor who tested me and I did really good, even better than last time :).
To Green Stripe and Onward! :D
