WW: Yellow Belt with a White Stripe {Linky}

Isaak thought he'd be able to go down a little further than he actually can.


He ended up getting his first stripe that day. It was only for good effort, but it meant a lot to him! He just started Jiu-Jitsu in June.


A Pushing Match in Jiu-Jitsu. Isaak won 3 times. He does this at home with Mica.



The proudest moment was when Mica tested for his yellow belt with a white stripe. In Jiu-Jitsu they test for a ton of stripes on their belt before they test for new belts. It's a great thing he got his yellow belt with white stripe; his white belt was getting too small. Mica was so excited that he wanted to sleep with his new belt on. For the record he didn't sleep with it on.




Mica had to do a lot of things to get his new belt. Here's just a few highlights:

Recumbent Ankle Throw:

Knife Attack Defense:

Hip Toss:

I was pretty good at splits, but could never do straddles. His expression is great.
