Two weeks until my brown-black test. I’m starting to get excited about it. I’m a little nervous, but not horribly nervous. I’m thinking it’s going to be fun. Sure, parts of the test (continuous multi-person attacks that seem to never end) will be sucky. But I’m actually looking forward to it.
More good advice from my sifus. Sifu Patty says when she went up for black belt, she thought, what can they do to me in eight hours? People survive torture and concentration camps and nothing that bad happens in a black belt test.
Sifu Chris talks to me about energy and where my energy should be focused. It’s simple really. The goal is always to devastate the opponent. It may take 3 seconds, it may take 10 minutes. But devastation is the end goal. It’s what we do in kung fu.
