To his (and our surprise), the test included 50 sit-ups, 50-push ups, and punching through 7 boards.Here’s Caleb keeping his game-face on when he found out the news. Composed and cool as steel.

And he did get a pretty cool thumb injury.  Caleb’s great grandmother told him that injuries are good for little boys.  She’s old school.   Luckily, it didn’t interfere with his piano recital that afternoon.  Last time he’ll need a band-aid because Black belts only bleed on the inside.

The part he did practice for was memorizing all of his poomse (forms).
