Hello and welcome back to Second Chance to Live my friend. You are always welcome here. Remember that reality. In today’s article I want to introduce the 2nd Part of the article in video format. Second Chance to Live and the Embracing Life and Living Well After Brain Injury Conference May 2013 — A Lesson Learned — A Smoother Transition Part 2. I create video presentations of my articles to empower individuals who learn better through watching and listening. I will provide an excerpt to Part 2 here.

“Here is the Back Story to provide a Smoother Transition

While I was training at a martial arts school, I achieved my brown belt. After achieving my brown belt and when my Sensei – instructor — decided that I was ready to prepare for my black belt, I entered an 8 hour physical and mental toughness test. To read more about this progress check test, please click on this link Traumatic / Acquired Brain Injury– Do Not Give Up on Your Dreams! Part 3 of 3. This test was to be among 7 other progress checks  over a 10 month period to qualify to be able to test for my black belt. Three weeks after completing the test, I met with my Sensei. I was told that I passed the progress check.

After Sensei told me that I had passed the 8 hour progress check, he told me that I would be invited to begin the 10 month long black belt cycle to quality at the end for a 2 day black belt exam to test for my black belt. As you might imagine, I was thrilled at the news to be able to enter the black belt cycle to test for my black belt after training at the martial arts school for 8 years. Two months into the 10 month long cycle — in early February — during one class my right knee started to lock up on me. To me this was not a good sign, after all my hard work and determination. To make a long story short, I had an MRI done of my right knee.”
