I was packing to go to Sioux City, Iowa on Friday and I had limited space in my suitcase. So much that I could only fit in one belt. I have two belts, a ragged black one and a red and white one. Often people ask me to bring the red and white belt because it is rare that anyone sees a woman who is a sixth-degree black belt or higher. I thought about which one to take for a minute and I realized that I have been a black belt for over 36 years. My belt looks like this from years of use in practice. I made my black belt this way. The red and white belt was just something a bunch of old men voted to give me. I packed the black one. It was a great clinic today. Thank you to everyone who came. It also raised money to send some students from Sioux City, IA to judo tournaments. Tomorrow, I'm speaking to students at the Sioux City schools and then heading home.
