We Came, We Saw, We Conquered.

After a long night and even longer day, the first half of black belt testing is complete!

I won't share the details, as that wouldn't be fair to our future testers, but suffice it to say that it pushed us all to fight through and do things we didn't think we could do.

I am so grateful to be testing with some truly exceptional people. Our final part happens tonight! Of what we know will be doing, it will be a true challenge of will, and God only knows what surprises our Shihan has in store.

The ride home after the day was done. Battered, but still standing!
