An excerpt from a Black Belt essay
by Anika Simon:
"One of my most happy moments was at my Bodan Belt test. I needed to do a spinning hook kick for my break. I was very worried that it would take many tries, but I ended up breaking the wood on my very first try. I felt so proud of myself. This is now my favorite kick."
