Photo Friday:Hi-Ya!

Padyn tested for her orange belt this past Monday. She has been in Tae Kwon Do for almost 3 months now. This was her first belt testing. Passing from white to orange is pretty simple. A few kicks, blocks and punches are about all it takes. But she was nervous beforehand. Mostly she didn't want a bunch of people watching her. Fortunately, we did her testing during her regular classtime instead of the set testing time. I think that helped ease her nerves.

Here's a few shots from the class. Her form may not be fabulous, but she does seem to like it.

final bow-thank you, ma'am
She is very excited to be getting her orange belt. I'm sure she will want to show it off in a photo or two.
Oh, but she's more excited that she turns six tomorrow. Guess I better get working on that post, too.
Happy Friday!
