Joey needs to test at least 3 times before he can test for his 2nd degree black belt and test with 3 different weapons and so he has been working hard and doing great. We hope he will test for his 2nd degree sometime next year.
They have learned some boxing combos this testing cycle. It has been good for Joey. He upper body strength and coordination is something that was a concern when he was first tested for occupational therapy. He did graduate from therapy but it is really good for him to do these sorts of exercises because it works on his strength and coordination and memorization (not really something Joey has to work at).
Joey's form is looking better and better.
He loves it and that is what we are thankful for.
