2019 was a very busy year for Carina club , with one student testing for 2 nd Dan in June, and in December not only did we have three students testing for Dan rankings (one for 1 st Dan, one for 2 nd Dan and one for 3 rd Dan), but the Club’s Instructor Mr Liyanagama also tested for 5 th Dan only months after competing in the 2019 ITF World Championships in Inzell, Germany.
My parents questioned my sanity when I told them I was going to trek to Everest Base Camp; it was as if I had announced I wanted to climb Everest itself. I had just completed my 2nd Dan testing, something I five years ago I hadn’t imagined possible, and now I wanted to take a stab at another lofty goal of mine. I’ve been to Nepal before, climbing a couple of 6000m peaks along the stunning Annapurna trek, so I understood the physical demands, the confronting nature of squat toilets, and the unimaginative, carbo-repetitive mountain food.
Squad for the first time The idea of going to squad scared me, black belts would talk about sore arms and legs at Monday’s nights training. By my calculations, people significantly fitter and in every way tougher than me were still sore over 48 hours after the event.
