Karate Kid


I am very proud to announce that R is now a 7th Kyu (Orange Belt) at karate. He did brilliantly at his grading today. It was not at all a formality, in fact some were not graded up this time round. A real achievement for a child who was not guarenteed to walk.

Amazingly, I am now also an 8th Kyu (Yellow Belt) This is the first award I have ever achieved for anything sporting in my 40 years and I was certainly not expecting to grade so soon after starting. I was worried about stealing R's special day but he has been so sweet and is as proud of me as he is of himself.
I feel ridiculously pleased with myself, and I have already got my papers sorted for a layout (tempting fate, but it paid off)
