My White Belt Story

If you are still reading, Awesome!

So, I finally got the courage to make an appointment.  The day of my trial, I wasn’t sure anymore about my decision. I was nervous. I almost regret making it.

I started driving and I told myself that I just need to get to the next traffic light, and if I want to, I could then turn around and go back home.

When I got to the light, I told myself that I could go one more light.  Then I hopped on the freeway and told myself I could turn back at the next exit.  I played this game until I got there.  

I finally parked. I sat in my car.  I could still go back home, I thought.  But I made it this far so I may as well go in.

I didn’t know who I would meet, what to expect, whether I would like it, or whether I would want to run out of there.

Everything was new and a little strange and I was anxious.  But I have to say, the people there tried hard to make me feel welcome. 

I told myself that day that I would go back over and over until everyone knew my name. 

It’s been a few years now. Now I know the people, I know the routines, and I know what to expect.  

I have friends, I learn, I laugh (mostly at myself), I get a great workout and learn skills that make me feel unique.

My advice to newcomers is this: Don’t turn back. Show up to class.  Be a regular.  Make attendance a habit.  Stick around until everyone knows your name and see what happens next.
