Mica got his third stripe at Jiu-Jitsu this week. I knew he was up for it later this month, but Sensei has an emergency trip to Africa. I asked if he should test that night, or if he should wait until he gets back? Sensei thought Mica was ready, so he went ahead and tested him.
He had to be able to count to 30 in Japanese, do forward, backward and combination rolls, get away from strangle and wrist holds, and do something that can seriously mess someone up (I can't remember the name of it. The person taps them when it starts to hurt).
Here are the rolls:

Here's the ending ceremony. Sensei always messes with the kids and their names.
Here's a final photo of Sensei and Mica:
