I Did It!
Today I got my recommended black belt. I had to do three board breaks and they scared me to death. I had to do flying side kick, spinning heel kick and one of my choosing. I chose to do a punch. The punching board break is my instructor's least favorite, while it was the only one that I felt confident in. I did it my first time. The flying side kick took me three times. Apparently I was kicking high, so they had to raise the board a little. Of all the things I could have been doing wrong, I'll take kicking too high. Then I got the spinning heel kick my second try. That's the one I couldn't do the last time I tried to get my recommended black belt. I tried over and over again and couldn't get it. Then my leg cramped and I gave up. Getting it on my second try means a lot! Oh I feel so relieved right now.
