I'm not sure if I'm ready to do another grading. I mean after the ordeal of the last grading!! Plus I'm a little worried about the sparring section of the grading, because I hate sparring!! Although the techniques look fun. I've practised the first and second combinations, and I've got to say, I love the first combination, I love how it flows, like how you drop after the right kick and strike with the elbow, flows really well.

I just wish I had the money to practise, because I would be there practising like a mad man! Its not like I have anything better to do. I'm really gonna try and practice more often.
