Brown black belt first stripe

Elizabeth's got her first stripe on her brown black belt... or as she likes to put it "three stripes to go!" Not that she's counting or anything...


In other news, she has been formally invited to start preparing for her black belt to be received June 2nd 2019. This apparently involves extra Saturday afternoon training, three Sunday morning exams and writing an essay about karate.


The physical requirement list seemed scary to me (it includes many jumping jacks and an obscene number of push-ups), but she didn't find it that daunting since she decided to do it right after her double karate class. And then again for good measure.
