After a wonderful recommendation for a local Martial Arts studio we took a trial Karate lesson. The first thing when you see the building it's a "No bully zone" and then inside the words "Respect, Self-Control, Self Discipline". (and I might add, no eastern mysticism/spirituality)
The children really enjoy it and so do I.... enjoy watching it.
The oldest 8 are in training and the 4 littles play or do some school work in the outer room. it's a nice set up
They all enjoy it so we'll see. We might have to put a "Beware of the Karate Kids" sign at the bottom of the driveway.
