Accomplished: 3rd degree brown belt
Four years, two months, and one day, that's how long it took me to get my third degree brown belt in Chinese Kenpo from Tracy's Karate. My first lesson was on Monday 17th November 2008, I got my brown belt on Friday 18th January 2013.
That day I also got a calf strain, which I've been resting this week. Should be back in action soon.
