Black Belt Testing Pictures

On Day 02 of the Iron Mountain camp, Master Whitson conducted tests for first, second and third degree black belt. I took some pictures with my iPhone, and I finally got them uploaded. Here’s a little holdover while I work on the summary of Day 03.

Preston Macready is testing for his first black belt here. He is working double stick tactics with Josh Ryer.

Brian Brown and David Curet are playing their Espada Y Daga drills during their second degree black belt test.

Joel is using his daga hand to jam Josh Ryer’s stick during the second degree black belt test.

I did not get pictures during Josh’s third degree black belt test on this night. He tested over Pekiti Tirsia Knife vs. Knife level 03. I got a little too caught up in what I was watching to remember to take pictures. Again congratulations to all who tested – color and black belts.

For me, each of these pictures is motivation to keep working hard and a reminder to make sure that my basics are solid. They also show that the material gets cooler and cooler as we progress in Counterpoint Tactical Systems.
