Black Belt Test

As the date for my black belt test nears, I feel less and less prepared. I know I was chosen (invited) to test because they feel I can perform as expected to earn the weight of being a black belt.

The test will be this Friday night and Saturday morning. Each session will be about four hours long. The first night will test our knowledge, technique, defense tactics, and determination. The following morning will test our endurance as they try to break us even more.

Fibonacci you crazy bastard….

As seen in the solar system (by no ridiculous coincidence), Earth orbits the Sun 8 times in the same period that Venus orbits the Sun 13 times! Drawing a line between Earth & Venus every week results in a spectacular FIVE side symmetry!!

Lets bring up those Fibonacci numbers again: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34..

So if we imagine planets with Fibonacci orbits, do they create Fibonacci symmetries?!

You bet!! Depicted here is a:

  • 2 sided symmetry (5 orbits x 3 orbits)
  • 3 sided symmetry (8 orbits x 5 orbits)
  • sided symmetry (13 orbits x 8 orbits) - like Earth & Venus
  • sided symmetry (21 orbits x 13 orbits)

I wonder if relationships like this exist somewhere in the universe….

My round kick makes my sidekick look so low… :P Not the highest I’ve gone with it (Sidekick), but compared to how they used to look I’m quite happy with it.
Before my master came, I couldn’t even extend the dang thing or hardly kick it above my waist. Still working on a few things………

Finally bringing myself to hopefully stay consistent with practicing ever since my master died. I’ve only practiced a handful of times since then. I’ve been pretty disappointed in myself, but I haven’t stopped thinking about it. At least I still remember everything, but I’m gonna have to start back sometime. I guess it is ok I gave myself some time, but it has been 5 months now and I’m going to have to continue doing what he wants me to be doing and what will be good for me.

Impressive flexibility, extension, guard and balance. All round great kicks, well done.

thank you =]!
