I took the test for my karate purple belt at Tracy’s Karate in Kirkwood on Wednesday 25th November. The test was at 8pm, which gave me all day to get nervous.
Today just didn’t seem right without a quick run through of my Long Two kata first thing this morning. I’ve been practicing that form over and over to get it right.
Purple is the first intermediate belt, I have blue and green to go before I hit the first advanced belt. I’m not a beginner any more! Felt sad taking the purple belt off to go to bed last night…
Paul took video on the camera, which made me REALLY nervous, but I can see my technique now, including the stuff I need to work on. Got to get over the nervousness somehow, any ideas?
