Jack's Favorite Summer Memory
On July 28th I tested for my black belt. Before the test started, my hands were sweating like crazy. I really thought it was going to kill us. I was really nervous!
It was a good two hour test. A bunch of kids in my age group got sick. Why? Because we were running, punching, kicking, grappling and everything else we had learned. After the test I felt very proud of myself.
The hardest part about the test was basics. We had to do five strikes per command for every strike. A strike is a karate move. By the time that was over I felt like I was going to pass out. It was very challenging because we couldn’t get a drink. How would you feel if you were being tossed around like a pillow and couldn’t drink water for two hours? I felt really dehydrated.
At the end of the test they finally handed out the belts. I got a picture with my sensei. This was the best moment of my summer!
