My Journey to 3rd Degree
In my journey to 3rd degree black belt, I have had to overcome several hurdles that I believe have made me stronger. In the months leading up to my test for 2nd degree, I injured both my shoulder and knee. I persevered through that test in pain, not knowing what awaited me on the other side.
In the three years leading up to now, I have had surgery on both my shoulder and knee, 19 months of physical therapy, and countless nights wondering if I can get through another test. The road has not been easy, but thanks to the help of my instructors, I believe that I can continue to persevere and earn my belt in June.
