It will be of no major interst to most of you to learn this, but I'm proud of my son and am going to do a little tiny bit of crowing. He just took a "test" for his first promotion (white belt to "high white" belt, which is the pre-yellow belt) at his Tae Kwon Do class. The master is a very cool guy. His instructors are also pretty damn cool. My son is a terrific kid, but does have some issues to work through. And they gave him tons of support and almost no static. But they did make him sweat through the first couple of months worth of lessons. The kid never worked that hard before. And he learned his "basic" and his first advanced "form" (the series of technical moves, blocks and punches, etc) and performed them quite well. Plus, he broke his first board with one good punch! He is not willing to brag. He likes to internalize such things. But you can virtually SEE that he's just bustin' with pride. And I am damn proud of him at the moment.
