Have you ever heard of a "yellow stripe belt" in karate? I surely hadn't until recently when my son was excited about being tested to earn it. I was honestly a bit surprised that he did so well at the test because he had missed quite a bit of karate due to the crazy football schedule. But, he buckled down and learned all of his katas (is that how you spell that?), and PASSED! Oh my, I think I'll stick to the ballet and let hubby deal with the karate. I even had to stop by the restaurant on our way to the Dojo, because I have no idea how to correctly tie a karate belt! We are super proud of Steven and his moving up in the ranks of karate.
