Still on Cloud 9. I was totally surprised, not expecting it at all, only had my blue for 13 months and did not think I was ready, but who am I to question my professors' judgement? Emily gave me the best compliment before calling me up "This guy works really hard, trains all the time and he's a great father" The best part, I was sitting with my kids and they were super excited and proud to see me get it. They train too, both are currently grey/white belts. Group Photo with 2 newly minted black belts, our firsts!
