Mitch Broke His Leg...a lot

Mitch's leg was broken during judo last Friday. His fibula was broken in 5 places and his tibia in 4 places. His ankle joint was displaced. He needed 2 plates, screws and bone grafts. He's home now.    It will take 8 weeks or more to heal. So grateful for modern medicine.

Crochet Pullover Progress

I finished the front panel of a crochet pullover that I hope to wear on an upcoming trip to Jamaica. The pattern is called Bloomsbury Top.

Martial Arts Weekend Two

We have a lot of weekend events at the dojang this month. This weekend was a visit from the association's president. He led a workout on Saturday and there was a belt test. My husband promoted to black stripe, which is one belt below black belt. 

Group photo of the attendees, I'm on the right.

Yes, I like calisthenics.

Martial Arts Weekend One

I'm calling this month Fightnado because we'll be in the dojo every weekend for special trainings and Mitch has a belt test.

This past weekend's event was a Certified Instructor Training. It was held at our dojo but students and instructors from 3 other schools also attended. There were over 30 people.

Only got a couple photos, was busy the whole time.

Next weekend is a visit and open house with the son of our Grand Master.
