The three bigger boys and Daddy started Karate together a few weeks ago and they are all loving it. And they are all doing lots of knuckle push-ups. (By the way, I love that effect above, don’t you?) The classes are held just down the street at the local public school so they all wear their Gis and walk down the street and everyone who drives by thinks it’s just about the cutest thing. Either that or they wonder what all these people are doing walking down the street in their matching jammies.
And would you look at the strangely appropriate street signs we have in our neighborhood. Weird.
Little hammy there at the end doesn’t have his own Gi yet, a situation which he hopes is remedied soon. He is copying all of his brothers’ moves and is always telling me, “Mommy, wook. I made new Kawate techniques!”
Don’t they look sharp?
These kids are good at this. They love the challenge and with the exception of my five year old, they keep attention throughout the whole hour. It’s already doing wonders in the self-confidence and determination department.
And this guy has done more knuckle push-ups in his three sessions of karate than he has done in his whole life. He’s really enjoying the class and it’s neat that they all get to learn together.
