Fritz got a new belt on Saturday.
It’s his last one before first degree.
He was so nervous before his test on Thursday.
After he passed, he burst into tears when I told him he’d be getting his black-recommended on Saturday.
Just the thought of being that high of a rank terrified him.
And then he was handed his new belt.
Suddenly the kid was absolutely glowing.
He kept hugging his belt.
He slept with it that night.
He can’t wait to test for his “real” black belt in 6 weeks.
Taekwondo life is good.
