I passed my kung fu test!

And my official kung fu name is now Red Haired Dancing Crane. It's a nice name that happens to contain a good natured insult or two. Red heads -> temper -> dancing -> sometimes I look more like a dancer than a martial artist.

The exam was 5 hours long! I won't go into particulars as I don't want to bore anyone, but it was physically demanding and I was so hungry by the end!

Overall, I made some mistakes here and there, but I am particularly happy with the way I performed one of my sword forms. I think I did a pretty good job with technique for my level of swordsmanship. I haven't got any feedback yet about that. But I am pretty sure my spirit while doing the form was right on the mark. My fellow students said I looked nice and firey. That's means a lot to me as I tend to look like I am dancing and skipping a lot of the time.

Someday I will get a picture of me and a sword.

Way to go Miriam!!
I thought that the 'dancing crane' was one of the most difficult moves to perfect in martial arts.. but then again, maybe I've just seen too many old movies! Hah!
Anyway - wonderful new name and a great success!!
