I successfully tested for first degree black belt in jujitsu late last month. My instructor managed to smuggle in a teacher from out of town to surprise us.
We were surprised.
Thanks to all my instructors and dojo-mates who made all of this possible! I couldn’t ask for a greater, weirder group.
Now I have to wear a skirt.
While there is a height differential between my instructor and I, it’s not as crazy as this picture makes it look.
