This is me a while ago getting my 5th kyu rank. My next rank test is in a few weeks and I'm not ready. My sensei (teacher)pictured above says 'no excuses - you are married to a black belt'. My husband is a Shihan which is an 'older' teacher. Pray I'll be able to do well on my test. I'm only going for a stripe. One additional kata which would be OK if I hadn't forgotten parts of my already known katas. Have a great day.


  1. okay! A prayer goes out that you will be able to do well on your test! Relax, you know your katas and it's time for the next one!

  2. So cute! I mean I come to you from Hillbilly Handiwork and was expecting to see a quilt - not a gal that is an expert in karate!! Well done to you and I will pray for you to do well on your test (and will follow along to see how you do... and quilts!)!
    Please visit me at my history blog - I'd love to have you!

  3. Oh, you'll be fine! Which kata are you working on?
