Image Hosted by

As many of you know, Captain Dramatic is in Tae Kwon Do. He recently took his test to move on to the next grade, Green Belt, Black Stripe. He passed with flying colors. Here is a video of him doing his pattern at his most recent test. If you ask me, he looks great!

After the students pass their belt test they get to participate in an awards ceremony. At the ceremony the each student breaks a board appropriate for their level. Based on CD's belt level, size, and age, he shouldn't be breaking a one inch board yet, nor doing so with his hand. However, during the week that passed from belt test to ceremony, CD would not leave Sah Buh Nihm alone about breaking a one inch board. He wanted to break the bigger board. He continued with the pestering right up until the ceremony. At the ceremony Sir held up a one inch board and stated that CD had been begging all week to be allowed break a one inch board, so he was willing to let him have a shot at it. Here is the video of how CD did at breaking that board.

At the angle the video was taken at, it may look as if two hits were needed to break the board, but it was really only one, hence the clapping right away. The bottom of the board was only held together by a few spindly fibers and would have fallen apart instantly on it's own if it have been held by one corner or the other. It is times like this when I am most proud of my little guy!
