So, this is an embarrassingly late post. I generally try to update this blog with what's new in my life, but as you might have noticed, there was a period of time where I was simply too swamped to post anything new.
So, I got my green belt in Jujitsu! Yay! Wait, you knew that already? Because I've had this green belt for a couple of months now? Oh, well... I know for a fact that you haven't seen pictures! Because VikingDad took hundreds of pictures and I had to go through them and sort them and well... I just didn't feel like it until now.
Most pictures are basically white blurs anyway, because, let's face it, it's really really difficult to get a good picture of someone performing martial arts.
Anyway. I didn't feel ready for my test, so I was super nervous.
After bowing in, we had to demonstrate how to fall properly.
I really like that picture, because it looks like I'm falling straight onto my head, and that's hilarious to me. In reality, I started from a headstand and was flipping over. So, just in case you were worried, I did not, in fact, break my neck.
After intentionally falling down a lot, it was time for joint locks.
I did pretty well on joint locks, but next came the throws! Throws are far and away my weak area in martial arts.
I passed my test! And not only that, but I did my best, too. I'm pretty happy about how it went. After the test, I took my first throws as an official green belt.
