It all comes down to tomorrow. Five patterns, nine knife-defense techniques, some sparring… and 2.5” of concrete.
For those of you who read my blog for the IT-related material, you will be relieved to know that after my test I will likely post some pictures, possibly a video or two, and a quick write-up… and next week this space (The World According to Mitch) will be back to being primarily focused on IT.
It has been a long road as most of you know… especially those of you who are martial artists. It will be two years (less ten days) since I earned my Black Belt, and it is clear that belt test preparation is a lot longer between Black Belt Dans than it is between Colour Belt (Gups), which I used to earn every month.
I have written all that there is to write and said all there is to say. If there is anything that I am missing today, I will not have it in time for tomorrow. If the stars are aligned, if I can focus my mind, then tomorrow I will earn the prize. I can’t think any other way. I want to thank all of my friends who have expressed their support and confidence. You all mean everything to me.
Thanks for reading… I’ll let you know when it’s done!
