This past Friday, my son and I attended promotional testing; I for my upper green belt, he for his green belt. Despite being a few ranks up from white, this was our first public promotional testing. We were both a little nervous and weren’t quite sure what to expect. In this instance, they split us up by white and yellow belts, green belts, and blue, red, and black belts, so my son and I weren’t in the same group. There were a ton of white and yellow belts to be tested this time around and I felt kind of bad for the kids in that group. Some of them sure looked bored waiting for their turn.
