A very worn out yellow belt, but still a yellow belt.

Had my first ever belt test today. Boy do they put you through the wringer! TWO hours, and most of it very active. I'm proud that I was fit enough not to bite the dust, frankly, all other things aside.

Congratulations! Two hours of physical activity and I'd have to be carried out on a stretcher. :o.O:

I don't know very much about karate/any sport that has belts, what level is yellow if you don't mind me asking?

My cousin used to do Karate... I never tried it though XP The closest thing I did was gymnastics and that was NOT my thing @.@

Curious about FreckledOne's question as well~

I felt really good right afterwards -- it was during Mass a couple hours later that I kept trying to fall asleep!

So for the style of karate I do, yellow is the very first earned belt (so right above white). I just started a couple months ago. Now I get to start learning some of the tricky stuff -- we'll see if my brain can handle it.

That actually sounds like a lot of fun... Are there any particular benefits from karate?

Health benefits. And I guess self-defense, though you hope you never have to use that! I'm a lot more flexible than I was when I started, and stronger.
