It was grueling. We began with a two-hour workout. After that, there was a four hour test. When *that* was over, there were pushups, situps, and all manner of sadistic “conditioning” exercises. I made one major mistake in the beginning and a minor one in the middle, but I think I made up for the big mistake and rocked the rest of the test. Hopefully that will be good enough, because I’m not sure I can put myself through that again!
Also? I learned that “awesome at taekwondo” means very different things at ages 8, 18, and…er…quite a bit over 18. =)
