The fastest 5 minutes you’ll ever spend in front of a guy in a suit.

My Mini Grading went ok I think (hope).

Us white belts got called up after a whole bunch of higher belts, which gave us an awesome opportunity to take a look at all the do’s and don’ts.

When we were called up we ran through some blocking, punching, kicking, and stances. We ran through our fundamental patterns, and I didn’t screw up in any big way. Then we got asked a few theory questions. I’m pretty confident with my answers, but I couldn’t say who the founder of Taekwon Do was (for anyone interested: General Choi Hong Hi.)

To be honest It was all over pretty quickly. I hope I kept my back heel on the floor, and my forearm blocks at shoulder height – it’s all a bit hazy… And I guess I’ll find out in the next few days.

  1. Yeah, hoping it went well for you. One thing I hate is being totally confident and thinking you’ve done so well only to receive a really crappy grade. Happened to me a lot in high school. But then again, it’s not how many times you fall off the horse, it’s how many times you get back up!
