Good, Cuz Green is His Favorite Color



TBone tested for his green belt last week.  Stay tuned to the end of this post to see if he got it or not.  But just look at the height of that front snap kick!  That's a hint right there. 



Please focus in on the fact that he does these push-ups on his knuckles and not the fact that his bum is so far up in the air.  Also, he goes down almost a full INCH, you gize.  But yeah, knuckles.  He's one tough dude.



So, due to the fact that he memorized his little purple belt routine so well and he stayed focused long enough to complete it, he got his GREEN BELT!  "MassaKwon" runs a tight ship so he earned it. As he was tying TBone's belt on he was saying (please insert your best Korean accent here) "Good work, Tannah, now you don't need to give MassaKwon any more gray hairs, ok Tannah?"  TBone promised him nothing, btw. 

 

PS The picture in the previous post was taken at the "board breaking" part of the testing which was last Friday.  I realized there are only a few of you who are secure enough to comment on such a post.  It was eye-opening to say the least.   Gty & I were snickering the whole time they were like that.  But it was also insightful.  The first guy was having kids run & jump off of him in order to kick a super high target (aka The One Taking the Abuse).  The second guy was there for "support" (aka The Supporter) and the third guy just wanted attention (aka Adds No Value, Just Wanted Everyone To See He was Involved).  So think about which one you answered and then turn this into a FB quiz.  "Which athletic supporter are you?"

Tanner looks so grown up in these pictures! But man he has a mean kick and push ups!! Don't want to meet him in a dark alley. Way to Go Tanner, that is awesome!

I had recently lost respect for martial arts from my sons' experience. But now, I've got a bit of it back.

Your kid is a stud!

So, how do the colors work and stuff? What level is Tbone on? You've gotta hand it to that kid to stick with it for so long.

ps. they really need to change the lighting in that place. After checking this post I felt the strong urge to pee.

Is that a Grecian dojo? Do you have to be a black belt in order to hold another man in that way? If so I would pull the kid out after he earns his brown.

It's not the lighting, Memz. It's the friggin walls! Unbearable. Even worse on film/memory card.

As for the colors of belts goes....I have no idea. I think there are like, 12 belts and he's done 5 of them? I don't know how much longer he'll do it...I'm getting sick of it.

Markie, that one dood is a "high brown belt." That is one belt before black. We're gonna have to pull him out way before that.

I'd be the one taking abuse. OR the sideline snickerer. T-Bones hurr did is getting so thick he looks too growed up btw. But very coolkid like! I suggest you keep him in this sport as long as you can stand it. It will be character building. For you. p.s. yw for being the only one to follow the rule. as uze.

Soon, he'll be able to beat up you and Gty. And it doesn't matter what color his belt is, because "Karate here ::touch head::. Karate here. ::touch heart::. Karate never here ::point to belt::."
