Testing dreams.

Posted Thu May 17, 2007, 21:23 PM by Tracy

It seems a little early to be having testing dreams. Nonetheless, I found myself in the wee hours of the morning dreaming of my upcoming black belt test.

It was a large test, with people testing for all ranks. We were each given a plastic mug of water. We had to do forward rolls without spilling.

My rolls were pretty lame. I could only partially roll; I ended up on the ground and had to get up from there. But I did manage to not spill my water.

In America the title sifu is given to both men and women. In Mo Duk Pai the title is awarded to 2nd degree black belts at their teacher’s discretion.
