Belt Testing at ABD

Note: This post is dated the day of the belt test, but was actually posted after everyone had finished belt testing, so as not to give anything away about what to expect in the test.

It was belt testing tonight. Nice small class tonight, only 8 of us total.


To start class we did jumping jack ladders with squats in between. So it was 100 jumping jacks, 10 squats, 90 jumping jacks, 10 squats, 80 jumping jacks, 10 squats……

Class was a mix of 2m rounds of our Muay Thai routine and 2m of Krav Maga. I lost track but think we did 3 rounds total of the Muay Thai and 1 round of the Krav Maga. Beginners got a little break while the BBT students did some 2m sparring rounds. Because of the small class size there was only one pair sparring at a time, so we all got to watch the sparring.

Class ended with another set of ladders, this time 100 squats, 10 jumping jacs, 90 squats, 10 jumping jacks…..

In total we did 650 jumping jacks and 650 squats. My legs are shot and I’m sure I’ll feel it tomorrow, and the next day, and the one after that…..

I did pass my belt test, no longer a plain white belt. I’m now a white/yellow belt!


  1. I felt tired and sore after watching the belt testing and all I did was take pics. BRUTAL!
