Tired but happy!

I can't remember if I told you, but back in June (the same day as Stamp Magic) Megan graded to 3rd kyu brown belt. Four moths later and I have been doing the same. It was tiring and full on for the two hours we were there, and a little scary. I was the only one grading from red to brown belt, so there was nowhere to hide at times! Even so I did it and now I am the proud owner of a Brown belt!
 These are two of my regular Sensei, Sensei Alex on the left and Sensei Xavier on the right.
This is our area Sensei, Sensei Karl, who is in charge of the region (Notts and Derbyshire), as you can see, at 6 foot 6" he looks like a giant next to me!
I was very proud of Meg too, as she went along to train at grading.

Sensei Karl was so impressed with Meg's Karate he invited her to senior class to train with the Sensei and black belts. 
I am hoping to relax with some inkiness this evening and  I will share some more cards very soon. Thanks for looking!

Wow, well done! My son is a 1st dan black belt at karate so I know just how hard it is - and as an adult it's doubly hard & I really admire you. So massive congratulations!
