She now has her second degree adult black belt. She almost didn't make it, as she had trouble with her run time. Had to get 2 miles in under 15 minutes, and it was very icy out. But she did it with 2 seconds to spare.

Her group of dojos has thousands of members, and she's the youngest ever to get the first degree adult black belt and now the youngest ever for the second. She's 9. She was moved into adult classes at 7.

Just braggin.

I can see why you're such a proud grandma, Polly! In addition to being absolutely adorable, that girl can really kick! And what an accomplishment!

Polly, that is so wonderful! I can't even imagine doing 2 miles in less than 15 minutes, let alone being a second degree black belt at her age. She is definitely in good shape!

Thanks, everyone. I'm sure she would weed, Lucy. She will do anything for money. She has her eye on an I something or other that costs 400.00, and her mother won't buy it for her, but she's gotten 100.00 together already from small jobs, allowances, and money for report cards, etc.

Her big accomplishment, Marilyn, is being an adult 2ond degree. She's gone thru all the kids belts by 7.

Here's when she started. She was 3, and in the children's class, of course. Her brother is with her. He's 13 now, and also a 2ond degree adult black belt, as is mom and dad.

Graphics were added by the kids years ago.

I know how hard it is to get to be a second degree black belt in the adult for being so young you should be extremely proud of her. Go girl and con grams into letting you weed and sure you will get the 400.00 quickly.

I am so jealous. I wish my joints would work like that.
She is a cutie.
