Madison has been taking karate for a few months now at the School of Empty Hand Art. Her Sensei, David Pettus, was my and my brother's Sensei when we were little! My dad also took karate with David, so he is super excited that Maddie is so into karate. Monday night she had her first belt test . . . . . she did AWESOME!! She did so well, in fact that she got to skip a belt and go to the double yellow stripe which puts her on the Jr. blackbelt track! She is SO excited and I am so proud of her! Here are a few pictures of her test and her getting her new belt.
