Bassai Dai

Congratulations! I have to wait until March, but I'm ready. I wonder if that kata is similar to any that we do. The one for 1st kyu that we have to learn is Pinan Godan-a breathing kata.

YAY!!!! Congratulations! Passai Dai is not too hard, but when you know it, it gets a bit tricky not confusing some of the moves with Passai Sho.
Nice looking certificate too! :)

Congratulations Amber! You should be proud of yourself. Thanks for sharing your journey. I actually trained in your style for about nine months and have a lot of respect for it.

Will look for your 1st kyu posting sometime soon!
