One thing is for certain - LM LOVES this karate class, and his teacher, Mr. David.
The whole time we were there, he was grinning from ear to ear.
And he did NOT want to leave when it was time to go.
Ripping through a magazine page
Part of the test - taking down a hand on his head.
We were impressed with the couple of self defense moves LM has already mastered. We knew part of the class was to talk about stranger danger and to teach self defense - but he's really learning it - not only the moves, but what to do if someone approaches him, or is trying to trick him. It was very cool.
Another part of the test - some sort of balanced walk.
They said "step - keeyah" each time, and it was measured.
And a rear kick - definitely his weakest move of the testing bunch.
He passed! He got his belt!
A victory dance was in order.
And, as you can see, his mother still has trouble getting the "horizon" straight.
More fun before we left - breaking a board.
And sword fighting!
Look at the joy on his face!
Mr. David really loves his work too, and it shows.
No, it really shows! ;-)
It was definitely fun to learn a little about what he does in class, and see him succeed at something he has learned. A proud mama moment.
See you soon.
