Black Belt Word Crawl

With Cyro getting black belt, I wanted to celebrate. See how far you can get through the black belt word crawl.

It progressively gets harder the further you go. You can retake the test over and over, but you start at form, do breaking, and then try for sparring. If you fail at sparring you have to restart at form.

If you have any suggestions, let me know. You may change the breaking board level to whatever you wish really. If death is too easy, switch it for say weather change.

Good luck!
