Getting the Third Degree…

Well, a great big CONGRATULATIONS to the little Ninja – she received her Third Degree Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do Karate tonight at the karate gym where she teaches and takes classes.

She had to spar, demonstrate her Third Degree open hand form, demonstrate both of her weapons forms, and break six sets of boards. She hurt her wrist on one of the board breaks, but kept right on trucking through all the rest until she was finished. I am really proud of her – she never gives up and once she sets her mind on a goal, she goes after it with zeal until she realizes it.

Her next big test: her driver’s license test. I taught her how to parallel park last week, and in her Jeep Wrangler, she had no problem at all. Of course, you can turn that thing around on a sidewalk, so it was a little easier, but she still had to be able to park that thing before I would sign her book. NOW she’s ready to take her test.

My little Ninja is growing up – she’ll be a Junior in High School next year.

  1. There is good all around us. Obi Wan Kenobi was right: this force (God) is what binds us together.
