Liam tested yesterday for his red stripe on his blue belt. It was sort of a formality given that he took a bronze in tournament with this same pattern a month ago. Needless to say, he passed with flying colors. BUT! I got lucky this time out. There were only three kids testing for red stripe and Liam was the closest to me so I got great video of his pattern. So, here it is!
He did a great job. Now, it's on to his red belt and the last new pattern he will learn for a long time. Once he earns his red belt he must earn three black stripes before he can test for black belt and for each of those stripes he must perform three of the 9 previous patterns he's learned. Come February (when he tests for red) he's going to be doing a lot of review of patterns.
Keep it up the great work, kiddo!
