    Check out my baby

    No, I am not referring to a new gun or a small child.

    My Wife, almost 4 months pregnant, tested for her purple belt in Taekwondo last Thursday. I had to brag on her, because as a home schooling Mom of 4 (add me if you feel it necessary) has made it to purple belt.

    Here is her test, Carisa's Green Belt test.

    Thank you, I am proud of her. Once she gets her CHL she will be the actual "complete package"

    I hear that home schooling kids you better have some SD H2H skills or they will run all over you

    No way, if she doesn't get me this way she can get me another. Attached is her target for her CHL proficiency test.

    I make sure I say yes ma'am and no ma'am.

    Way cool! Congrats to her! That stuff is a lot of work and it's ten times harder with everyone sitting on the mat watching.

    Yeah, and one of our instructors has a mean streak, as he puts it, and likes to make her go last. He knows she hates it, but also says that if he were in her ranking he would not want to go after her.

    He makes me go last many times too, especially after I came back to class with a 2nd place trophy against guys who had accumulated points in a tournament series; and it was my first tournament to participate in.

    We like our instructors, they don't teach the sport of TKD but actually mix in some Kenpo with it. They are currently learning Krav Maga and will start working that in as well, when they become more proficient in it.

    That's a hoot.

    My instructor has a talent for sizing people up and pushing them to the very limit. Things like how many boards you're going to break, how you're going to break them, etc., are at his discretion and he is very good at giving you the maximum you can handle. When he gives me a choice I break with my head. I don't want to put anything important at risk.

    My classes are just about 100% TKD - my instructor is Korean. But every now and then we will do something like the 'drunken brother-in-law' scenario (tactics designed to avoid a trip to the hospital) or showing people why the fight is over if someone gets you in a rear naked choke. It's always a hoot to watch a big guy start to black out and fall when a little lady has him in a RNC!
