Orange belt

Well, I went, struck, I blocked, I kicked, I kata’d and I sparred. After two hours of training I left the dojo with an orange belt. I am, as you can imagine, well chuffed. After the grading I legged it back home (if you can call ‘legging it’ driving), picked up my guitar and case and went to the band practice. I have now just got in and I am preparing for mucho curry. Thanks for the words of encouragement from you all. Sparkes – maybe we should spar...


I am nervous. This is because I am gonna do my orange belt karate grading today. This is my second grading and it is pretty nerve wracking. Fingers crossed. 😀
