It took nearly nine hours and there was no heat in the dojo. It was insanely crowded and kept getting moreso as the day went on. I was pretty much a freaked out ice cube by the time we finally were able to leave. BUT I now have a first degree and second degree yellow belt in the family!
I can’t take credit for any of the photos here. Because of the crowd, I sent the boys off with the camera and they took pics of each other since they had full view from the training floor.
