Taekwondo Test

Yesterday, Jamie and I tested for our next belts in taekwondo.  I have to say, that Jamie rocked her part of the test!  She was the only red senior belt testing for red senior II.  So when Master Pejo called her up to test, she was pretty nervous but used her self-control to keep it hidden.  I knew she was nervous but she didn’t show it while she was actually testing!

Here she is doing her poomse…Tae Guek Chil Jang…

kyroogi formulas…

one-step sparring…

As you can see, she was the smallest on top of being the only red senior.  A little bit for her to swallow.  But she did so great.  It was time for her to stand in front of everyone to break her boards.  She had a combination board break this time.  She had to do an elbow strike…

and ax kick…

and broke both boards on the first try.  She was so proud.  You could just see it in her face!  I love that look.  Then it was time for her to receive her new belt.  It looks the same but she has white tape at the ends to show she is a red senior II belt.  Dae Sabumnim was there to present the belts…

Then it was my turn.  Poomse, one-step sparring, and kyroogi formulas…

and my board break.  I had to do dero ilbo junjin round house (spinning round house)…

Then onto my new belt.  It looks just like Jamie’s without the stripes at the end…

The best part is now Jamie and I can practice and go to class together!  Oh, and Jamie got a medal for have 15 or more blue character stripes on her belt.  She also had the most of the girls and received the trophy!

It was a great morning!  Our treat is some dark chocolate peppermint bark (for the red and white belts).
