Day 576 { Karate Exam/Guy Who Kidnapped Kids Is Freed }


Today, I did the karate exam. And surprisingly, I wasn't nervous as I normally was. I won't know my score though until in the next 2 weeks or so. The routine that I completed is called Shiozuki, and now I am going to be doing this new one name pinan shodan ... it is supposed to look like this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kJu0YECQIDk

In 2 weeks I will know whether I am a Orange, yellow or still a white belt. I asked a girl to video me... but she some how thought I asked her too take a photo... So, this is all the video she managed to capture.... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MuWI9VufHVg



Guy Who Kidnapped Kids Is Freed

An American man who was arrested in Fukuoka for allegedly abducting his children in order to regain custody has been released from jail, police said Thursday.

Christopher Savoie, 38, a Tennessee native, had been accused of taking his two children, aged 6 and 8, from his Japanese ex-wife late last month. He allegedly took them as they were walking to school and was arrested on his way to the U.S. Consulate in Fukuoka.

Kiyonori Tanaka, a police officer at Yanagawa, Fukuoka Prefecture, said prosecutors had made the decision and police are not in a position to comment on it. He said that in general, someone arrested could be freed from jail when there is no flight risk or fear of destruction of evidence, or if prosecutors decide not to press charges.

Good luck on your exam - even though it pass already, hopefully the score is good.
