I passed the test of steel and received a handmade green cordao. It feels amazing to be a part of the ASCAB/Ginga Solta tree. The baptismal ceremony was extra special because of the friends and family that showed up to share in the experience with me. Thank you all for bearing witness.
Now everybody asks, “What’s next?”
My reply, “I continue to train and play Capoeira with a belt to hold my pants up!”
Also, per my Mestre’s instruction, I have a lot of upper body strength to work on. Pushups of all variety are in my future.
Sigh of relief,
A Warrior Princess
