So here’s the thing. I’m not a kid...and I’m not a Black Belt. Or even a GREEN Belt yet! That being said, when Sensei Jon asked me to sign up and compete in KyuFest, part of me really wanted to do it for a few reasons--even though I had never done anything like it before. First, I’m very much a team-player, and if the team leader asks me to do something, I’m inclined to say yes. Second, I know it’s an opportunity to overcome a pretty significant phobia of mine--stage fright.
