Poet MiNi-MAULer with Instructors

March 2018 grading

Congratulations to everyone who graded at the end of March!

The occasion has been commemorated in verse form by newly purple-belted MiNi MAULer Jasmine.


With the belt comes responsibility,

With the belt comes respect,

The higher the belt gets.

Your moves must improve,

Your moves must improve.

Your kicks must be slick,

Your kicks must be slick.

Smooth moves, slick kicks.

Your kicks are slick,

Your kicks are slick.

You can land a perfect ridge hand.

Todays the day,

Take it away.

It’s grading!

Time to grade,

Don’t let your courage fade,

Don’t lack faith,

But do be safe.

Your moves rule,

You rock in a Dobok,

You’re super cool.

Well done,

It was fun.

You never faded


You graded!

Never forget what you achieved.

Because you worked hard and you believed.

Grading’s over now,

Time to celebrate…

But not too much…plenty more learning awaits.

Bam was that ok ma’am?!
