Saturday Mazie and I tested for our next belts in taekwondo. I was so excited to see Mazie testing. She had to know half of our total curriculum. That’s a lot of stuff to know! She did so well.
First her poomses (forms)…She had to do Tae Gooks 1-4 and Kyroogi poomse 3.
Then it was on to kyroogi formulas (1-12) and sparring (1-10) and self-defense (1-6)
She also had to know various steps. Her board break was running jumping front snap kick!
She received her new bo dan II belt from Master Lee (of the Monument dojang) and was very pleased with herself!
Then it was my turn. I was in the group to go last for our dojang. After a little warmup it was time to get testing. I did my poomse…
Kyroogi formulas and self-defense with my partner…
Even my flying side kick! Thankfully that didn’t come out clear on the powershot. It really wasn’t pretty. Although I do get some height with that kick! It was time to do my board break. I had to do a jumping roundhouse.
Jamie and Jacob listened during the test and were so good. The only thing was that Jacob was getting tired at the end so Jeremiah couldn’t get a picture of me receiving my new red belt. It was a good test!
