We have done it. Another karate test has passed and so did we. Matt is a blue belt and half way to his Black Belt. Mikey is now a black recommended belt and is two tests away from the coveted Black Belt. I am half a step behind Mikey and will be a Black Belt in August. My wonderful honey is a 2nd degree recommended belt. He will test in March to be a full fledged 2nd degree Black Belt martial artist.
He was asked to to a board breaking demo with real boards at the testing on Tuesday night. Here it is.
He did a similar break for his test on Wednesday night. The speed break (the first one in the video) was replaced with a palm heel and the side kick (the second in the video) was done with him jumping over two kick shields standing side-by-side. Sorry no videos of that one. Maybe next time!
