We can do this, just push back the fear and work to the best of your ability.
We did it! It's finally over. We can take normal classes again.
I went through months of hard work and training. Throughout that we had two tests, the Fear of God test and the Red tip test. Preparing us for the final test, where we would receive our black belts.
The Road Back
This has been an exhausting day.
It was the final test and my fear was at the highest level it could be. While, no one has ever failed this test before I was still scared that I would manage to mess it up. Yet in the end I still did my best and hoped it would work out.
Are you guys going to continue your training?
At the end of the test my friends and I all got our black belts. We were determined and pushed through the exhaustion that we felt.
Return with the Prize
We were able to relax and calm down from the excitement of the day. We got to eat, take pictures, and hang out.
Later on we were given the choice to stay and continue our training or quit karate. We all decided to continue going together.
At the end, I felt accomplished like I had done something good. It felt great to know that I had pushed myself and got to reach one of my goals.
