This is something I did during my brother’s Shiai. He was doing demonstrations. I couldn’t post it live because there was no wireless.
1:42 Doing warm-ups and thanking people for various things
1:47 Showing off the basic moves and counting in Japanese. I have trouble counting in Spanish so I don’t know what they’re saying.
1:52 Black and Brown belts showing off their moves. Lots of yelling. It’s hurting my ears. It funny how my brother can always pick an activity that hurts my ears. In case your wondering I’m talking about African drumming.
1:55 White belts showing off their moves. Still lots of yelling.
1:57 Yellow and Orange belts showing off their moves now. A little less yelling.
2:00 Talking about some visitors from across the River.
2:01 Green, blue, purple belts showing off their moves. Mainly grunting instead of yelling.
2:04 Different group of brown belts showing off their moves. A little more yelling this time. My back hurts.
2:05 Sat in a chair and my back feels better.
2:08 Bunch of 5 year olds attacking padded blockers. This is really funny. I love live blogging!
2:10 Now it’s six year olds attacking the blockers
2:11 I love my new glasses! I can see much better than I could even with my old ones. Unfortunately I can hear well too. My ears…
2:13 My brother did this time along with some of the other older students he did well.
2:16 Bunch of kids from a karate summer camp doing demonstrations. They’re yelling but not as loudly.
2:18 A fight among adult brown and black belts weapons included.
2:21 Brown belts doing… something involving a circle. Oh yeah and yelling.
2:23 My brother will get to break a board.
2:25 Showing off his strength, my brother broke the board. I would hurt my hand if I tried.
2:27 Some people broke some boards with their head. Ow.
2:29 My brother’s favorite instructor got promoted to first instructor.
2:30 Now the white belts are getting promoted to white belt 2.
2:33 The white belt 2s are getting promoted to yellow belts.

2:47 This will go on for a while so I’m going to be quiet. Man, I’m tired!
2:56 We’re getting close to the end.
2:58 Someone has a few announcements to make.
3:00 Giving flowers to someone.
3:02 Finally the potluck is about to start!
