Blue Stripe!

Liam had a belt test this morning and he passed with flying colors.

If he keeps it up at this pace, he'll earn his blue belt in October, be a red stripe before Christmas, and earn his red belt just after his birthday.  Once he's a red belt he gets to start breaking boards.  After red belt he has to earn 3 black stripes before he gets his black belt.  So, as long as nothing derails him, he'll get his black belt sometime when he's eight.

I can't tell you how proud of him I am.


  1. Go Liam! I notice that his ankle completely and mysteriously healed in time for the test. ;)

    When does he get to break bricks? We have a wall in our apartment that we'd like to take down.

  2. Oh yeah, his ankle was fine days ago and we stopped wrapping it.

    I don't think he's ever allowed to break bricks, but we did see a black belt break SIX one-inch boards at once. All stacked together.
