“When the student is ready, the master will appear . . .”
Ancient Shaolin saying
A few weeks ago Dominic tested for his purple belt in Shaolin Kempo Karate . . .
He has a wicked side kick. It is almost a mid-air full split. I didn’t quite catch it in these images . . .
Waiting for his sensei’s decision on his belt . . .
“Think about where you did well and where you could have done better. Then, remove your belt and open your eyes . . .”
The good news . . .
Then ice cream.
He told us he nearly quit halfway through because he got so hot that he had a migraine. (Long sleeve shirt under karate gi = HOT.) But he kept going to the end. That takes character.
