On a happier note than my last post, Stu moved up a belt in Jiu-Jitsu yesterday! He didn't think it was going to be a big deal and wasn't even sure if he was going to move up or not, so Kaden and I didn't go watch, but they lined the guys who were moving up in a gauntlet-style tunnel and they had to jog through and get whipped by each of the 18 black belts, with the belts doubled over. Stu came home with welts the size of decks of cards on his back. Here are some pictures, taken just 20 minutes or so after the lashings! Imagine what they're going to look like tonight! Poor kid. But, initiation into higher belthood aside, he was very happy to have moved up!
