Purple Belt Conquered!

Guess who is the owner of a shiny, new purple belt in Tae Kwon Do?


 Willow! I wasn't in the best position in the audience to take pictures, but I did manage to catch some video as Willow was working through her form (to prove she knew all the moves for the green belt and was ready to move on). It's interesting - in the lower levels, the instructors counts out the moves, and so the students are paced out - but as you move higher, you have to do it all in your head, and it becomes something like a dance.


 Congratulations, Willow! We're so proud of you! Now we have to buy sparring equipment, because with the purple belt level, she gets to learn how to do hand-to-hand combat.
