    Ouch! Last night at Sparring class I rolled my foot/ankle. Right on the knife edge. All my weight plus my momentum. It just went over and I totally thought I broke it. My Master was unsure too but then noticed no major swelling or bruising. I got really lucky. I iced it all night and took some Aleve. It's sore today but I'm going to class tonight but I don't think I'll be worth much there. It should be back to normal in a couple days. Again, I was lucky to not do more damage. Recently I was kicked solidly in the balls by a Black Belt, pulled my Glute/Upper rear Hamstring and now I roll my foot. Unreal. Hahhaha I LOVE TAEKWONDO!!!:)

    Ah green belt is same as Yellow belt if you are a 9th Gup.

    Hahahhah thanks Michael! That's classic you hurt yiur foot drinking a pint! Hahah I love sparring and we go at it good so we all have injuries of some degree 24/7. My ankle though was my worst. Sort of creepy like anymore pressure and it would've snapped. I got lucky and my feet are getting stronger and my balance too. Cardio is always the thing that i have to stay on top of. When my endurance goes during sparring it's hard to be effective. Being a Green Belt is awesome and I test for my stripe in 30 days. I'm looking forward to it so much! I practice my form today. Yes, I'm having fun and love Taekwondo!
