5 years, nearly 5 grand and my little man- Jonny earned his Black belt. I don't think the significance of it has sunk in for him. It has been half his life that he has been working towards this point. What he will do with it- time will tell. As with everything else he does he has been intense with Karate and it shows.
I missed the Mad Dog sponsored race at Soldier Hollow, but it was worth it. It was a proud day for his father- me.
His favorite part: a sword given to him by his instructor.
