A few weeks back, my son finally tested for his yellow belt, but it took a few weeks for the belts to come in, so the ceremony took place yesterday after sparring class.
It involves passing knowledge from the old belt to the new one.
It also involves getting kicked into your new rank, which is basically what it sounds like.
The coach lines up in front of each kid, and kicks 'em in the gut.
In the case of my son, since he didn't do the kiyai correctly, he got kicked twice. Heh.
He survived. And we're so proud.
