Adventures in Karate Instruction

As a brown belt, I am now allowed to give belt tests. Last week I gave a yellow belt test, and last night I gave an orange belt test. Both girls passed with flying colors.

I gave the yellow belt test on Thursday because the main instructor was giving a green belt test and couldn't do both. The other brown belt was also there, and she taught everybody else while we gave the tests. Then last night, he wanted to work with the new students, so he had me give the orange belt test while he did that.

The boy who took the green belt test passed, so now we have a fairly advanced student to teach. I need to review my blue belt kata to make sure I'm doing them correctly before I try to teach them to him.
