Can't think of a title for this post

So- some good news on the pretest. M passed (i knew she would), the crying one passed, and the adult arm-breaker did NOT pass. There IS justice in the world. So right now, they're all at the track freezing their butts off running 4 miles and doing crunches and pushups. aaaaahhhhh fun.
So, since our dojo has a new space for pilates and yoga, they've also started offering belly dancing class. Thats right, BELLY DANCING. For women only. I went last night and had a BLAST! They are having it every friday night and its taught by this girl (well, 24 yrs old) whose brother and sister take karate. I will definitely go again next friday. Rumor has it that Renshi wants a belly dancing demo done at the next Black Belt spectacular. I am definitely up for that. I enjoy making a fool out of myself in front of a huge crowd.

Hey Mere! How are you? There is belly dancing at Chelsea's studio and I must say that those women are so comfortable in their own skin. I envy them and strive to be at that level of comfort!

Happy to hear that you are doing well.

OOooooooo... I have always admired belly dancing, and I'd be one of the ladies in line for those classes. Have fun! It will definately strengthen your midline, and legs and help your karate 100 fold!! What a fun way to do it too!!

Go for it!

That does sound like fun, but I don't know if my baby stretch marks would appreciate being bared for all. ;-)

Beth - I'm anonymous - not just some cruel ANONYMOUS person. I was having problems posting the comment (probably because I was at work and things always go wrong with stuff you shouldn't be doing while at work.) But anyway - again - hahahaha - that made me laugh out loud.
