In the weeks leading up to the test he had to relearn and pass off the forms from 6 of his earlier color belts: White, Orange, Yellow, Camo, Green, and Red. At the test he had to demonstrate three of the six: White, Orange, and Red for the panel of judges.
Breaking is a part of every test - color belt or black belt. Ethan had to break one board with a punch and another with a kick. A lot of kids need multiple attempts, but Ethan made it look easy on his very first try.
Here's a great picture of Ethan with all of his teachers.
