My magical moment happened last year during a martial arts test. I had been working on all the requirements for a year or so and I was extremely nervous. The test started with the warm ups which consist of 50 pushups, sit ups, and high jumps. Those are to tire you out to see how you work when you are exhausted. Then it goes into these series of moves that they randomly pick about 6 out of 30 and they aren’t short at all. Finally after they had me fight 3 people at once I had to break 5, 40 centimeter thick, wooden boards and 3 cement blocks that are slightly thicker. I was exhausted but my master was clearly proud of me afterwards! I had passed and done the traditional belt ceremony and got my 3rd black belt in Tae Kwon Do!
