a totally awsome feeling.
I don't mean to sound as if I'm bragging, because those by all means
are not the intentions. I just want people to know that if I can do it
at 13 (actually I was 12 when I got my blackbelt) then you can for sure
do it at whatever age you may be.

sucky moments, wanting to quit and all that stuff...I just thought you
people might care to know I did it. It is important and just feels all

Congratulations Rachel, I love to hear about people reaching their
