in early December EK tested for her black belt and received it. Her instructor decided to let her get the black belt instead of her American belt, which puts her in the junior class. She was so excited! Her next belt test will be in February and she will move up then. They are suppose to have a tournament on January 24, hopefully they will, and she will be able to participate!
The Junior class will be a little bit more difficult. The instructors actually do test them. They do have the chance at failing, but most don’t.
