I had to write an essay myself when the black belt testing for my school came closer. It didn't really influence whether I receive a black belt or not, it's just something everyone did before they tested for black belt. I'm sure it's similar in DramaQueenNell's case.

true enough. thanks! i will have to think on this for a while longer. i know what its done for me...im just not sure what it means to me.



I know how you feel. When I had to write the essay, I never thought of what Martial Arts meant to me prior to having to answer the question. Even so, my answer came out naturally, almost as if I knew the answer the whole time.
