 Not to much exciting leading up to the test. Trained the 12th, 14th, 15th, and tested on the 16th.

Test day was surprisingly an off mindset day for me and I am still a little surprised how well my muscle memory took over.

Did not train the 17th and learned my new form yesterday.

Did 7 about 40 times after warmups and had the choreography down within 2 shows.  It's a pretty interesting form and potentially difficult on my knees as I turn a lot but it gives a lot of insight for breathing I believe as well as teaches the 'fast' method of Shim Gum Do which I know about but since I haven't technically been taught it can't apply yet.  That said I might still play around with it in my spare time.

1-6: 1x
7: 30x
Fighting Forms: 1-3: 5x

Fighting forms are always interesting.  I have a bit of trouble maintaining my distancing and letting everything flow.  Definitely have to work on keep my head defenses up when my arm mis tired so I'm not just swinging my wrist around blindly.

Also been researching different styles as I presume when I move from Boston I will need to find another one and settle on that one for life.
So far I'm looking at Aikido, Judo, Jujitsu, Jeet Kune Do, Wing Chun and Chow Le Fut Kung Fu.  I'll find somethin I swear haha.  I've crossed off Brazilian Juijitsu however as I just don't have that much interest in glorified wrestling no matter how apparently useful.  Not to mention the ranking system in BJJ is ridiculously overdone.
