Brown Belt

Mister J (he’s getting too big to call Little J) has been working toward a black belt in mixed martial arts for several years. Tonight’s promotion included demonstrating the sticks and some Jujitsu. His progress is amazing and we are pleased to watch his skills grow.

For reference here’s the rankings: White Beginner – Lack of knowledge; Yellow Seed beginning to sprout; Orange Sprout is blossoming into a plant; Green Plant beginning to grow; Blue Reaching for the sky; Purple The sky deepens with knowledge; Red Danger – Lack of control; Brown One more mountain to climb; Black Serious student

Best of all are the tenets: Courtesy, Integrity, Perseverance, Self Control, Indomitable Spirit, Victory!

There you go. Mister J is well on his way up the mountain!
